         The %1-99 variables can be used as 'wildcards' that will match with any
         text. They are useful for highlighting a complete line. The %0 variable
         should never be used in highlights.

         You may start the string to highlight with a ^ to only highlight text
         if it begins the line.

         Besides color names also <abc> color codes can be used.

Example: #high {Valgar} {reverse blink}
         Prints every occurrence of 'Valgar' in blinking reverse video.

Example: #high {^You %1} {bold cyan}
         Boldfaces any line that starts with 'You' in cyan.

Example: #high {Bubba} {red underscore b green}
         Highlights the name Bubba as red underscored text on green background.
