Highlight search results from queries containing a wildcard

    Presently, if one searches for a complete word it is highlighted in the results, but if one searches for variations of the same word using a wildcard (*) the term (or a portion of it) is no longer highlighted.

    From a user's perspective (usability and expectations) I find this behavior inconsistent.

    It would be great if the results from search queries containing a wildcard would be highlighted just like in the case of queries without a wildcard.

    It seems sort of obvious. If it's able to find the posting at all from the wildcard term, it would know what word resulted in the hit and be able to highlight it.
