Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-pseudo-4] Add a highlight pseudo-element for find-in-page or scroll-to-text (#5233)

In gecko the selection that `find-in-page` and `window.find` use is the same, we just paint it with a different style in the find-in-page case. Also there's another case which is the 'highlight-all' option, in which case we do use a different selection, but with yet another set of colors. So there are three cases here:

 * Regular selection / regular color (`window.find`).
 * Regular selection / find-in-page color (find-in-page primary match).
 * Find-in-page selection.

In gecko the find-in-page color is called `attention` style (I think it's used also for a couple other things), fwiw.

This is somewhat similar to the discussions we've had about styling the inactive window selection, where it seemed that people preferred a pseudo-class that applied to the existing `::selection` pseudo somehow rather than a whole new pseudo-element, but I could be misremembering.
