DNA sequence alignments

Thank you for your replies. Two people suggested programs that box similar
residues. However, what I am looking for is a program that will box
DOMAINS (putative transmembrane domains, etc). When you retrieve a
sequence from swissprot it lists these domains by amino acid number so it
would theoretically be possible to box these domains in alignments of
similar proteins.
