[Tex/LaTex] Change text background within paragraph (with automatic linebreaks)


How do I change the text color as well as the text background color for e.g. a sentence within a paragraph? I know \textcolor for coloring the font and \colorbox for background coloring [http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Colors]. Unfortunately \colorbox will not perform a linebreak. Is there any solution for that?

I want to make MY changes in a PDF document visible for review. I know some other approaches like diffpdf, oder pdftotext and then diff.. But I thought this should be an easy task.

Thanks for your comments.

Edit: Hm, appetite comes with eating: Unfortunately the \hl command from soul and all other approaches I saw does not regard whole environments like itemize, tabular. So I don't want to highlight all text inside them separately. Do you see any way around this problem?

Thanks again.
