When I'm doing three way merges, I reformat the affected lines as needed to make 
sense of what is there.  Typically though, I don't have too many three way 
merges because we try hard to keep multiple people from working in the same 
areas of files.

When you have to do it though, there are certainly many characteristics of the 
file which create issues for making the merge go fast and correctly.
