    Sorry for the ugly heading.

    I work a lot with Eclipse (Java Dev) and a lot with Notepad++ because it is very fast when it comes to XML files and folding of them.

    A feature of Eclipse I use very often in normal text browsing is: select a word and every occurrence of this word is highlighted in the file automatically and on the scrollbar the positions are displayed with little dots. This feature can be toggled by an icon in the iconbar/toolbar.

    It makes navigation and understanding of a file so fast, that I feel this would be an important function for Notepad++ too.

    BTW Thanx for this editor, I wrote a lot of HTML and CSS with it too, and it rocks. :)

      I find this feature very useful too.

      Select your text, type Ctrl+F.
      In Find Dialog : check "Mark Line" and "Style found token", then click "Find All" button.
