+1. I'd like to see the highlighting changes ported over to the 2.4 docs. I don't see any
value in having them in the 2.2 docs.

Over the coming months as trunk doc changes are copied over to 2.4, highlighting will begin
to appear here and there. Only by doing the whole enchilada can we have any kind of consistency
across the documentation.

Yes, I expect that the styles can be further tweaked, but I like what's there currently. Subtle
enough that it's not a circus billboard, but vivid enough that you can tell what's going on.
