Recently i had to spend a whole month writing in MS Word specification for our new project.
Using Word i found one feature which was quite handly and i realised that it is what i miss in IDE.

I like to be able to highlight text with different colors to make todo / broken / smelly code easier to spot later.

It would be great if highliting could be saved, i dont see an easy way to do it though..

One way is to record information in a separate file but it is not portable.

Other ways is to add special comments to separate highlighted text eg


echo /*<HL=yellow>*/ "this text will appear highlighted";

This is hard to do becuase comments can not be put just anywhere and even
if highliting is rectricting to marking the whole line it wont be possible to insert comments
inside of heredoc strings...

Well, ok, adding just non persistent highlightes would be great Smile
