    Hilite Form Text

    Hello,
    I am so lost, i cant find anything on the net relating to this so i though i would ask someone,

    I dont know how to make the function, i would like it so that when the user enters the text it searchs the text on the page and hilites behind the text yellow. So its a bit like a "find" function that hilites behind the word that it is asked to find.

    I dont think that JS can do this but i thought i would ask anyways,
    Thanks.
