Re: [gedit-list] highlight a line in a text file in gedit

A highlight plug-in would be very useful. I was surprised not to see
one since the editor is geared to automatically provide colour-coding
for numerous different programming languages. I should think a similar
service for writers of English might easily be produced. But then I
don't know what the conventions are on the difference between text
editors and word processors - where the line should be drawn, that is,
and why.
