This feature is already in place.
When the search results are displayed the keywords are red and in bold font while the other words are white or blue.

Could you specify what search settings you use to be able to not get the keywords highlighted?
BTW, what web browser do you use?

OK, now I see what you mean.  :)
I have never seen the feature as you describe it but it would indeed be practical. Could you link to an example?

Anyway, here are some workarounds that will make your PS life easier:

- If you check "show results as messages" you will see the full posts with kewords highlighted.

- When you click from the results page there is no highlighting since you are leaving the search section and viewing a normal forum topic page. You can then hit Ctrl + F and search for the keword on that page. In Internet Explorer this will highligh the keywords one at a time but you can easily check though a long page by pushing "Enter" repeatedly.

- For those using the web browser Firefox there is also and option for Ctrl + F to higlight all matches on the page. Get firefox here:

As said earlier, I find the Firefox highlight function quite helpful in such situations.

Also PS uses SMF, da SDC uses phpBB.
