But the problem is doing the selection of the "highlighted" text to correct.
Double click works at word boundaries, so currently limited to a mouse swipe or
cursor (L,R) to make a selection. 

Additionally we need to be able to select by "state" to detect highlighting (or
other direct formatting)--i.e. does the text cursor point to text with direct
formatting attributes and so differ from style of current paragraph--select
that text for an action.

That should be granular enough--to use a <Ctrl>+M--or just reapply a new color
fill from the picker.
