Comparing phylogenetic trees.

Hello,

I have some questions about comparing (the topology of) phylogenetic 
trees?
(i) Page has introduced a formalization of comparing (oa) gene and 
species trees. The difference is explained by a reconciled tree. Is there 
a UNIX program of this method available, and if so where?

(ii) Are there any other methods/programs available for comparing trees, 
which use more information (for example bootstrap values) and/or offer 
other ways to reconcile the trees (e.g. in terms of horizontal transfer).

If anybody knows anything about these things and inform me about them, I 
would greatly appriciate  some of his remarks.
