Lack of interest [Suggestion] Highlight BBCode (with button)

On TAZ, I often use our highlighting BBCode - this puts a yellow shading over the selected text to make it look like you ran a highlighter over it. It's great for highlighting specific parts of posts or messages that you're quoting - Bold, italics, and underline are not nearly as good for this purpose IMO. We even have a little button for it in the editor toolbar so you can select the text and highlight it without having to manually add the BBCode (our button looks like a little paintbrush with yellow tipped bristles).

Any chance on getting this added? :)

If you look here you will see a little button:


This button will let you set a background colour, effectively highlighting it. I am assuming it's going to be easy to create a custom toolbar assuming TinyMCE, by default, allows you to create custom toolbars.

Yes, if you use bright yellow as the background color this is the effect I'm talking about.
