New submission from Mark Mikofski:

expected: using Sphinx search in docs, search keyword is usually highlighted on resulting pages.

observerd: query string ?highligh=<string> does nothing on http://docs.python.org/2 although it actually does work for 2.6 and all 3.x docs. Doesn't appear to be a function of Sphinx version as 3.x docs and 2.7.x docs all use Sphinx-1.2.3


works: https://docs.python.org/3/tutorial/appetite.html?highlight=indent

does'nt: https://docs.python.org/2/tutorial/appetite.html?highlight=indent

platform: works?
chrome: no
firefox: no
