Bug Description

During busy IRC sessions, it is easy to miss important messages in one of the channels. It would be nice if Lernid hilighted/bolded important messages. These would include any message containing the user's nick, any message from an instructor/helper in -chat (as these will usually be answers to questions), and any message from ClassBot.

Messages containing the user's nick are already highlighted. The highlighting is very hard to see on my LCD display and must be on yours too. I think I'll switch the hightlight tag to bold for the NativeChatroom.

Apparently, ClassBot messages are not being specially marked.

This is now case-sensitive. Should be case-insensitive. Related to lp: #812427, but not identical. Will probably highlight classbot messages with italics rather than bold.
