You might want to take a look at the HighlightingTransformer that has been donated only a
week or 
two ago. Look for messages with that name in the cocoon-dev mailinglist.

Though, I think it marks keywords, not element matching a specific xpath...

By the way, I think you approach of generating a XSL to achieve the highlighting is not bad
at all, 
quite powerful even. I have been using the approach on many fields allready. Mostly for template

mechanisms (when jxgenerator wasn't yet around).

In your case performance might be an issue though. When the Xpaths vary a lot, a new XSL has
to be 
generated, compiled and cached each time. :-(
