Can you actually read those characters?...

I'd have thought that someone would instead make an abstraction that would 
make it more obvious to the eye, e.g. show both numberboxes at once 
separately (e.g. side to side), and also show a square that goes red only 
when there's a difference between the two numbers.

It could even do it with a threshold, e.g. go red only when the difference 
is bigger than 0.5, or only when it's bigger than 1% of the two values, 
etc. It's a lot more versatile than relying on overprinting, imho.
