Well, I could imagine regex-replacing the output of htsearch in a
PHP/3 or CGI wrapper script which then would just pass the requested
URL on to another wrapper which in turn does the hilighting. That
way you won't get the document directly from the server but modified.
Together with the anchor feature of ht://Dig that would be exactly
what Sasa asked for.
