I saw it for the first time yesterday evening. They're still not showing a cache date, but the words in the search term are now highlighted in bold, bright colors.

Ummm, haven't they always been doing the highlighting?

The highlighting on searched kw's in Y cache has been there as long as I can remember.

The last change I'm aware of is when they also started highlighting word forms, I think sometime back in mid-2005 (so if you searched on only a plural form, e.g., "blue widgets," they highlighted "blue," "widget" and "widgets").

But to be honest it's been a while since I paid great attention to the highlighted words in the Y cache.

Did a little checking just to be sure I wasn't confusing G with Y. The archived content below seems pretty conclusive, unless Y's Help page has consistently been inconsistent with what was actually happening...
