umm... look at my .emacs file. If you have hilit19 enabled, you probably know (or know how to find out) how to disable highlighting for certain things.

One way to do it, if you've got a pretty standard setup, is to mess with hilit-mode-enable-list.

Note: turning off hilit19 on things that call hilit-rehilit-buffer a lot can really decrease the amount of garbage collection emacs does. Now I can actually see the letters I'm typing within 7 seconds of typing them.
