Joomla 1.5 search module

Why when a search is submitted the results are in the format:

 <span class="highlight">  My Result </span>

I would expect the class highlight being actually applied to the result rather than than it's code being listed.

I see the problem... are the results coming from a content management system?

the <span class="highlight"></span> is being parsed as text rather than markup, what tags are you using to output the results on to the page?
