background highlighting of selected text

I wish to highlight specific pieces of text with a specific background color
and boldface black foreground color as, for example, the text 0.4549 on page
26 of the slideshow
http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ~beebe/talks/2005/prng-2005/slides-prng.pdf . How
do I achieve this effect? I have used
\definecolor{ye}{rgb}{0.988,0.733,0.024} to define the background color I
want to use.

Or, more simply, just \colorbox from the `color' package. See
the grfguide.
