you mean highlight like an actuall highlighter?
try this for that effect, if its not what you want just say so.

<style type="text/css">
.highlighter {background-color:yellow;}
</style>

<a href="webpage.html" onmouseover="this.className='highlighter';"
onmouseout="this.className='';">blah</a>

This code is much better,as it works in all browsers:
<style type="text/css>
a:hover{background-color:yellow}
</style>

Yes, use CSS Pseudo Classes



a:link {
color: #009999;
text-decoration: underline;
background-color: #FFFFFF;
}
a:visited {
color: #009999;
text-decoration: underline;
background-color: #FFFFFF;
}
a:hover {
color: #00CC99;
text-decoration: none;
background-color: #FFFFFF;
}
a:active {
color: #00CC99;
text-decoration: underline overline;
background-color: #FFFFFF;
}


You can put this in <style> tags or in a seperate CSS file.
