\definehighlight

Syntax

 \definehighlight[...][...,...=...,...] [...] name [...,...=...,...] see \setuphighlight

Description

(MkIV only) Highlights are a generic facility for defining and maintaining different emphases.

Highlights are respected by the XML export (see \setupbackend), resulting in a tag `highlight`, with the respective names as argument to the attribute detail.

Example

```\definehighlight [important]       [style=bold] %% define a highlight
\definehighlight [reallyimportant] [important]  %% inherit setups
\setuphighlight  [reallyimportant] [color=red]  %% modify the copy
\starttext
This \important{you} need to know.\par
This, however, \reallyimportant{everybody} needs to know!
\stoptext
```
