Highlight Selected Text inside a Jupyter Python Cell

On my Jupyter Notebook, I am not able to get Selected Code lines highlighted. I have searched and tried CSS suggestions from Stack Overflow etc. But so far no avail.

I can get selected Text highlighted in Output and Markdown areas. But not in Code Cells.

Appreciate any tips:

a) The correct location of CSS file that is being used.
b) The CSS style element and its properties.

Thanks in advance

P.S. I am still running 2017 version. I have tried to stay away from Upgrading Anaconda or Python as many libraries/code used to break whenever I upgraded. Things I exercise are Speech Stuff, Audio/Midi Stuff, Image/Graphics Stuff, UI/Widgets etc…

Below is the cut-n-paste from the Jupyter Notebook “About” text.
