You may have turned on the Style Override Highlighter feature. In the Paragraph Styles panel menu, choose Toggle Style Override Highlighter.
Wow, thank you! I have never seen that feature so I know I didn't turn it on, but I bet it came on after the last update. Thank you so much!!
That's exactly right, thanks Salah!
For anyone else experiencing text highlight that will not go away:
In changing InDesign preferences, I mistakenly changed one that resulted in about an hour of frustration trying to get a text highlight to turn off.
Under Preferences > Composition > Custom Tracking/Kerning
When I deselected this tick box, bingo! All stubborn highlights disappeared.
This may help someone else whose problem isn't solved in Track Changes...
