    Highlighting your own quotes for english - which colour?

    One of my teachers recommended that we highlight our quotes points in essays, so it's easier for the marker to read. Does anyone know which colours show up on the scanners for the HSC? I'm guessing yellow won't work, but maybe pink or orange?
