highlights in web archive

Following up a request dr_tone had made on the DT/DN Requests & Suggestions list (http://www.devon-technologies.com/scripts/userforum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2399&p=11766&hilit=color+web+archive#p11766), does anyone see a way to make a script that highlights/changes the color of selected text in a web-archive?

As I understand it, this won’t be part of DT 2.0. Is that correct?


I can’t promise highlighting in web archives for version 2.0 but at least it’s part of the endless to-do list :wink:

Here’s a tip for DTP/DTPO users (only those editions support editing of web archives):

Select parts of a web archive, open the fonts panel (see menu Format or press Cmd-T), click on the button to change the background color, select the desired highlight color and finally save the web archive.

… and then the backgrounded/highlighted font can be copied and pasted using DT’s 3 and 4 shortcuts for the Format:Font menu items.

Probably still deserves a vote to be kept on the endless to-do list for, at a minimum, consistency sake.
