Highlight part of conversation
It'd be lovely if there was a way to highlight text in an ongoing thread/discussion. It's quite common that when posting long texts, the responding person/people miss part of what has been entered.
E.g. I'll enter three paragraphs of text, the person/people responding completely miss out on what's entered in the second paragraph. Rather than having to enter "As I was saying, above, in my second paragraph...", it'd be very useful to be able to highlight a block of text.
Not sure if I should only be able to highlight parts of my own text, or any text.

Absolutely, highlighting specific parts of a conversation would indeed be a valuable feature in threaded discussions.
The better solution to your problem would be a proper quoting feature, like on Discourse, for example.
