PubMed search terms highlighted

Well, this is pretty cool.

On July 19, PubMed added a highlighting feature that will help you find just where your search terms are. Search terms will be highlighted in pale yellow in the Summary, Abstract, and Citation display formats.

Highlighted terms will include your search terms as well as terms that have been added by PubMed to enhance your search. Check out the 'Details' tab to see how PubMed translated your terms.

Highlighting must be turned on in My NCBI and is only active when you are signed into My NCBI. Register/Sign in to My NCBI and click on User Preferences on the My NCBI sidebar. The default will be "Off." Selecting a color and clicking OK activates this feature.

For more information about this see the NLM Technical Bulletin. All the details and more...
