Pardon us for getting all excited over a pack of highlighters, but seriously, why aren't they all designed like these Uni Promark Views ($15 for five)? The middle part of the tip is clear, letting you see exactly what you're highlighting as you drag the marker across your page.* The construction is top-notch, too, so you won't have to deal with color bleeding and ink smearing. You'll definitely want to stash these in your backpack or purse for the next time you buckle down and do some serious work.
* If you're left-handed, your hand will probably still partially obscure passages unless you highlight from right to left. It's an ongoing curse, we know.
