I have a request from a client to have a very long web page with a find feature embedded into the top of the page.  If you typed in a word then the find feature would find and highlight the word.  It is the exact same feature as if you pressed control "f" but embedded into the site.


Not sure if this can be done, anyone?

I was thinking javascript. Check out the javascript plugin here: http://johannburkard.de/blog/programming/javascript/highlight-javascript-text-higlighting-jquery-plugin.html

Let me know if you need help implementing it.

Wow.  That is really something.  I'm thinking that it might do the trick, however I am wondering if there is a way for the user to type in text and the press a button that says "highlight"
