Text highlighting

Hi all

Something that's always bugged me and wondered if anyone else had an opinion.... when you're highlighting words in body copy with either a colour or a heavier weighted type and the highlighted word is proceeded by either a full stop or a comma, do you highlight the punctuation in the highlight colour/weight or leave it the same as the body copy?

I'm aware that there is injustice in the world and there are greater things afoot but it's the small things that always tear me up inside!

Any thoughts?

Don't think there are specific rules for this, but:

If I wanted to highlight this part of the sentence, that's the way to do it.
But maybe I'd like to highlight this part, this part and this part.
Or perhaps this part, and this part which continues the previous thought.
This could also just be a highlighted warning.

Or maybe...

Yeah sorry it's a glitch I found out about just now. I updated my post though, should work now.

Greg, if you read this: When you click the text color icon to use the previously selected color, it adds an rgb code (rather than the name) which apparently isn't supported.
