@kbd{M-x hl-line-mode} turns on a global minor mode which highlights the
line about point in the selected window (on terminals which support
highlighting). Some people find this convenient. If you find the
cursor difficult to spot, you might try changing its color by
customizing the @code{cursor} face or rely on (the default)
@code{blink-cursor-mode}. Cursor color and blinking can be conrolled
via the @code{cursor} Custom group.
