It is not impossible. Actually, it is fairly easy, just a bit of work.  
Make a number of background patterns and change the background pattern  
when the lineheight changes.

You can, but don't have to, set the textColor of selected text to white.

Yes, there is a bug report for OS-complicant hilites. I believe it  
applies to windows, but might apply to Mac as well.

Best regards,
