Is this a scanned document? The highlighter gets it's information from the geometry of the text that you are trying to highlight. If you don't have "real" text in your document (e.g. a scanned document that was OCR'ed), then this information is coming from text that is hidden behind the scanned image. If it's not a scanned document, then there is something else wrong with that text. What is the PDF Producer and Application information in the Document Information dialog (Ctrl-D or Cmd-D)?
