How do you compare contracts? (or perhaps "How do lawyers compare contracts?")

I had to sign a contract the other day. There were two copies of the contract and I had to sign each one. Before the meeting I was emailed a PDF of the contract to look through.
There is the potential here for each of the three copies of the contract to be different. I was wondering what strategies people have for dealing with this?
I would also be interested in less simple cases: comparing printed with electronic contracts; comparing contracts when the font size or paper size means the words wrap onto different lines.
The obvious answer is not to use a shortcut - to read each contract word by word, but there must be a trick here - what is it?
