When searching for hex values or strings within the packet data, when a
matching packet is found it is often impossible to locate the target in the
data view unless the text is cut-and-pasted into a text editor and then
searched once again.  In searches for hex values or strings in the packet data
only the target bytes or string should be highlighted instead of the entire
field. Afterwards, if the user clicks on any bytes or characters in the field,
the entire field should be highlighted.
