(Version is a guess, it's the one from Qt 4.6.x)

When calling findText() with the highlighAllOccurences flag set text is highlighted as it should, however I've been unable to remove this highlighting after the searches are done. 

According to the documentation for findText() I get the impression that calling this function with an empty string should clear all highlights but this is not the case.

Please follow the QtWebKit bug reporting guidelines when reporting bugs.

See http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/QtWebKitBugs


  - The 'QtWebKit' component should only be used for bugs/features in the
    public QtWebKit API layer, not to signify that the bug is specific to
    the Qt port of WebKit


  - Add the keyword 'Qt' to signal that it's a Qt-related bug

Please add a testcase.
