Small bug in some versions of vi , if you perform a search for example the letter “p” . It finds the letter and highlight it for you. The issue we had was after closing this file and opening a new file, the letter continues to stay highlighted. To clear this we had to search for something that did not exist in the new file and the highlight disabled.  using the command :nohlsearch will temporary disable it
