He he... .  How do you hit it?

left thumb to `M' and left middle/index finger to `w'

It seems pretty awkward here.. double strike to spc bar to loose
the highlight seems quickest... but I've been using for a while too.

Ever since the new highlight defaults come into effect.

Although C-g would be a close second.  Some how I never thought of
C-g.  I use it dozens of times a day to stop all kinds of things,
just never occurred to me to use it for this purpose (loosing the
hightlight).  It might grow on me.
