    No problem. The I is for Important and the U is for Unimportant for each status. Here's a description of the terms from the statistics report:

    SourceFile - file on the left side of the comparison, considered the older file.
    CompareFile - right side file, considered the newer file.
    IOriginal - total number of important lines in left file.
    IAdded - important right orphan lines.
    IDeleted - important left orphan lines
    IChanged - important different lines
    The U lines are the same as above, just for lines of text that are unimportant.

    An example of important is a line with source code differences, an unimportant lines would be a line containing comments (with default Session Settings).
