I've created a new page on my site and for some reason I cannot highlight text on the page. I think it has something to do with the background color being white (#FFFFFF) and the initialized color also being white (#FFFFFF).

It seems the text itself gets highlighted, but because the text is on white background, the highlight cannot be seen.

How do I fix this? I want my readers to be able to highlight text normally. Is there a best practice for this kind of situation?

I've set up a dummy page with embedded CSS so everything can be seen in the source:

(note: the page validates as HTML 4.01 Strict)


Thanks in advance.
