      I'm using vim 7.3 on Windows 7. When I issue:

      :echomsg synIDattr(synID(line("."),col("."),0),"name")
      :echomsg synIDattr(synIDtrans(synID(line("."),col("."),0)),"name")
      :echomsg synIDattr(synID(line("."),col("."),1),"name")
      :echomsg synIDattr(synIDtrans(synID(line("."),col("."),1)),"name")

      It's interesting that you don't see the current quickfix item highlighted. I thought that maybe I set something to turn on quickfix highlighting, but I can't seem to find the switch. I searched the web and the quickfix help to see if quickfix is *suppose* to highlight the current item by default, but didn't find indications of that either.
