I have read the archives, but it does not answer my particular question.
I have been commanded to have certain portions of the text highlighted with
a yellow background (as if you had actually used a highlighter). At first I
was making yellow boxes and sending them behind the text. However when the
text moved, the yellow box would stay where I had put it.
I have come up with an extremely clunky way of accomplishing it, but my
solution is a crime against nature and healthy for neither man or machine.
I create an anchored frame "at insertion point" and put the yellow box and
the text in the anchored frame.
Can anyone think of a better way of doing this?
Your thoughts are most appreciated.
