When you use an answer link the answer in question is highlighted briefly when you visit the link. The highlighting fades to white for the current sites. For example, try this link: FAQ for Stack Exchange sites or this one on SO: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/194812/list-of-freely-available-programming-books/392926#392926.
