Or perhaps "(previous edit)" or some such, linking conveniently to that 

It might also make sense to take the (diff) and (hist) links away on the 
sub-items. If the diff links were specific they might be nice, but it 
certainly makes no sense to a bunch of links to the exact same history 
list... but mainly, it would set things off distinctively if you could 
indent them instead.

Also, the list keeps getting interrupted with huge date headers whenever 
it comes across an old edit from a previous day or vice-versa.
