If you add this to your .vimrc:
" Clears search highlighting by just hitting a return.
" The <BS> clears the command line.
" (From Zdenek Sekera [zs@sgi.com]  on the vim list.)
"  Guido@VanHoecke.org added the final <cr> to restore the standard behaviour of
" <cr> to go to the next line
:nnoremap <CR> :noh<CR>/<BS><CR>
search highlighting will be removed when you next press Enter.
