What kind of editor are you using?! Any decent ide will give you syntax aware highlighting of selected variable, not word, and even most simple text editors highlight words separated by spaces, commas etc. I've never seen an editor that highlights the exact selection. I have actually missed that feature once or twice but for coding the other behavior is usually much more preferable.

I just use vim.
