Is there a keyboard shortcut to highlight the selected text in MS Word 2007?

I have done a bit of searching and cannot find a keyboard shortcut for this command in Microsoft Word 2007. I am not talking about simply making a text selection. (that would be a no brainer) What I would like to do is select some text and toggle the background color so it appears as if it were marked with a yellow highlighter.

"You can set them in Word Options, Customize, Keyboard Shortcuts.

Edit: Actually, it's already Ctrl + Alt + H."

Goto ""Tools"" menu and select ""Highlight"" option

Assign keyboard shortcut to it like ""Ctrl+H"""

Use Alt+H+I to select the color to start with and then keep using that color with Ctrl+Alt+H till the time you need to change the color.
