Starring intermittent failures in the failure summary involves a lot of eyeballing of long lines of test output to identify if an actual failure matches one of the suggested failures. Sometimes there are multiple suggestions.

It would be wonderful if there was some kind of indication of how closely those long lines of test output match. Maybe by highlighting the parts of a failure suggestion that match the actual failure? That way you could see immediately if a suggestion is a perfect match for the actual failure or just a partial match.
It already does that highlighting. Though the font that TreeHerder seems to be using now makes it hard to see that.
By "highlighting", I mean it makes the matching test bold.
Matching text, not test...

Good grief, how did I not see that? Thank you, mccr8.

Maybe italics would make it clearer than bold? Anyway...

Or underlining. Or a different colour?

Or longer term: automatic classification, so humans don't have to do this :-) (bug 1177519)
