      So sorry not to be so clear: Let my try again with more information:
      It appears that when I mean to comment out a line of Python code, I press the
      key for #. ('#' is the comment key for Python.) Forgetting to first press 'i'

      Since I have forgotten to put the editor into insert mode, what I have actually
      done is told that editor that I wish to search backwards for the nearest word.
      Thus, the word "while" is highlighted as a word to search for :

      So I simply know how to turn off the highlighting for that word. I can do so by
      deleting viminfo, but I need to know the command to turn off the highlighting .

      I have tried :help highlight, but it is not clear from the resulting
      documentation how to accomplish this.

      I hope that I have now been more clear.
