Search in Anki Manual jumps to the wrong location on the page

If I enter a search term in the search field and then click on one of the results, it usually jumps to the correct page but the location is way off. It can be very tricky to find the right spot in the documentation as the pages can be quite long (which I like in general, but here it is not helpful...).

Also, it would be nice if the search term could be highlighted in the documentation as well (it only gets highlighted in the results in the result list, but not in the actual documentation). That would make it much easier to find the right spot.

Last not least, the result texts don't seem to evaluate markdown? (e.g. if you search for "order" you find an entry in the section "New Cards" which displays "...nally. **order** controls whether Anki should add ne..." as the result text, while the documentation itself shows "order" in boldface.
