highlight filter term

This is an awesome solution, worked perfectly for me. Is there any way to highlight the term filtered on? For instance, when filtering by a field that is a Multiple lines of Text field, and there is a lot of text, it would be nice to be able to pinpoint exactly where my filter term is in the mass of text.

Hey, Ruth!

This is something I've thought of implementing for SharePoint InstantListFilter myself, but I haven't done it. It's certainly possible. The tricky part is that you'd need to alter the DOM in each place where you had a match and then undo those alterations when the filter value(s) changed. So it's a bit more complicated than just highlighting the matches: you'd have to clean up after yourself gracefully.
