Highlights make your mIRC play a little sound or flash when someone says a particular word (usually set to your nickname). It's useful to let you know if someone wants you, without having to check the mIRC window all the time.

     #2 Check the box beside Enable highlight
     #3 Click the Add button
     #4 $me means whatever your current nickname is at the moment. 
          - You can of course put some other text in if you wish such as an alternative nickname.
     #5 Selecting a specific color will make any lines that contain your highlight word show up in in that said color
     #6 Click the No Sound button once so that it says Beep. 
          - This will make your mIRC beep once when someone says your highlight word
     #7 Flash message will make the mIRC button flash in your desktop's toolbar when it is minimized and you are highlighted.
     #8 Tip message will make a small window (a balloon tip) pop up near your desktop toolbar when you are highlighted.
