The easiest way to do this is to write out the page that was found, and then do a replace on the keywords that were searched for.

So lets say your keyword is in a variable called "searchword"

You are writing out a result as the text for a page, lets say the variable for that is called pagetext

Now you write out the pagetext and do this:

pagetext.Replace(searchword, "<span class=""highlighted"">" & searchword & "</span>")

Now all you need to do is create a stylesheet for that span class="highlighted"

Hope this makes sense.

Max.
