but in effect this is only used as $Text.highlights. The expression returns a list of strings that have been highlighted in the $Text using Format ▸ Highlight.

$MyList = $Text.highlights;

$MyList = $Texthighlights("red");

would return only those highlighted $Text portions using a red highlight colour.
