I don't know. The loss doesn't always happen though. If the list field 
is part of a group with background behavior and it has sharedtext set to 
true, the hilite is retained as long as you navigate within the cards of 
the group. But if you go to a card that doesn't contain the group, and 
then back to the original card, the hilite is lost again.

I don't know if this is an oversight or intentional, or just one of 
those things that's never been reported. It's been that way for so long 
that I just figured that's how it is, and I live with it. It might be 
worth a report, though I don't know if it should be a feature request or 
a bug report.
