WP Emphasis

Description

One-click implementation of the New York Times open-source emphasis script which allows users to highlight and link to specific text within an article or post.

In their own words:

Emphasis provides dynamic paragraph-specific anchor links and
the ability to highlight text in a document, all of which is
made available in the URL hash so it can be emailed, bookmarked, or shared.

The plugin allows for permalinking and highlighting of text on a paragraph and sentence level. No need to set anything up. Just install, tap shift twice, and start highlighting.

See The New York Times for syntax more information on general usage.
