Hi all. I encountered an issue where the CSS provided in this episode wasn't highlighting the selected search term.
I dug around and found out that for some reason JQueryUI changed the class of "active" search items from a.ui-state-active to a.ui-state-focus. If you make that change to Ryan's CSS, the example works again.
