[sword-devel] How to highlight SWORD module search results?

The feature table in the aforementioned [page](https://wiki.crosswire.org/Choosing_a_SWORD_program#Search_and_Dictionary) already has a row labelled Result highlighting

NB. Some cells in this table are yet to be populated....

Aside: Few of our front-end apps have an Advanced search feature yet.
Often lacking is the option to choose between case-[in]sensitive search.
