Subject RE: Highlight Search Result

leads to more questions. :)

- I read the patch is pretty new (3/2003). Does that mean I need to use the
CVS version of the code?
- Also, in your archived email, you mentioned a Highlighter class. Is it

- Or, is there any sample or documentation about using this new feature?
- Is there any planned date for the next release, which will make the change
