Whether or not you see search term highlighting will depend on the output format you are creating. Unfortunately, we haven't much to go on. RoboHelp exists as basically two products. RoboHelp for Word (where Word is used as your editing environment) and RoboHelp HTML. Each RoboFlavor is capable of producing a variety of ouptut formats. WinHelp, HTML Help, WebHelp, FlashHelp, etc.
Basically, search terms can be highlighted (I believe) in only WinHelp and HTML Help output formats. WebHelp can be coaxed into doing it, but will require modifying the scripting used. I don't believe it's possible in FlashHelp.

No need to reinvent the wheel. If you want search highlighting in WebHelp, Peter Grainge has written up how to achieve this. Click here to view the relevant page on Peter's site.
Edit: Oops. Just noticed that the method Peter describes is for RoboHelp X5 and you are using X4. So maybe this won't be so useful after all.
It works for X4. Thanks for everyones replies.
