    While commenting on this question, I wondered what word is most appropriate for the blank here:

    Each time I do a compare, the marking method changes to highlighting the entire line, __ I prefer to mark changes with a rectangle.

    I thought of but, while, whereas, though, although and however.

    Could someone briefly describe the implications and suitability of each of the above in this context? Is there another word which is more suitable?

    Can we use though and although interchangeably? Somebody told me that the difference is that though cannot be used at the beginning of a sentence. Is that the rule?
