How can I highlight a word in a text component from JavaScript? [For instance, as the result of a spell check.]

Well you can highlight that using the select() function:

<Script language=javascript>
function test() {


<form name=frm_test id=frm_test>
<input type=test value=Hi name=txt_value id=txt_value>
<input type=button onclick="test()" value=Highlight>

If you need to highlight only specific text in a text box then that's not possible. For example, if the text box contains "hi there", then you cannot highlight "there" only. The entire text "hi there" will get highlighted.
