You can highlight the searched word by running the enclosed macro after doing a search. But, as mentioned, it does not work in all cases, for example if the searched string is part of longer word.
Maybe in a future Vedit version, there is more versatile coloring system, that could be used for other things than just syntax highlight. (Perhaps a color attribute for each character?). It would be useful for output generated by macros, too (display texts with different colors).
