You may want to consider using the free Kindle app, which has a nice yellow highlight feature. (You can convert your existing books with Calibre.)

Yes, but only if the highlighted text is not flagged by the spell checker in which case only spelling suggestions are being displayed.
(Unlike previous versions, there doesn't seem to be an option to turn off the spell check in v6.)

IMHO, it would be helpful if one of the next minor versions would have the one of the following features:
- user defined shortcut keys and/or toolbar buttons for 1-5 custom styles/clips (E.g. S1, S2, S3, S4 and S5) that can be applied in Book View mode
- a user defined Small Caps style, e.g. <span class="sc">\1</span> with a dedicated toolbar button and a shortcut key

GUI options for changing background or foreground colors would be overkill, but a simple yellow highlight feature or some kind of custom bookmark might come in handy during the review of an OCR'd text to mark words or segments for further review.
