Has anyone else come across what appear to be random highlights and underlines in Nookbooks? I am seeing them a lot in Clive Barker's Imagica currently but have seen them in other books as well. These are part of the text not ones that I have added through the notation option in the Nook (I verified a number of times that I hadn't added any unwittingly).
It isn't the end of the world, it is just distracting when reading to have a word or two highlighted every couple pages for what seems little reason.
Anyone have experience with this or figure out how to make it better?

Welcome to the forums MelRod.
Yes, there is a whole thread in another forum about this. Someone downloaded a book that had highlighting almost every page. A few of us looked it up in various places online where you can see sample pages and there were no highlights.
There has been thoughts as to whether or not this is a way of doing footnote reference and other things. But no one has really come up with any firm answers. It could be a screw up in the compiling process used by the publisher.
Epubs are compiled from a series of html pages and one little wrong code or forgotten "/" mark and something gets fritzed. It could be that it was supposed to be in italics and somehow ended up with the gray background code.
If it doesn't impede your reading, then fine. But you may still want to contact the publisher and let them know how the book appears.

Thanks so much for the information! Sorry to ask a question that has already been asked. I did a number of searches but only came up with info on how to highlight/add notes.

No problem, I've only read about it yesterday in another forum. Seems this is a recent occurrence.
