Highlight PopClip Extension

This extension is a replacement for the PreviewHighlight extension. The intention is to add support for all apps which have a "Highlight" keyboard shortcut.

(Please note: Microsoft Word's highlight feature is not accessible via a keyboard shortcut, so cannot be added.)
