Hi all,

Andrea - great work, sounds like it will be really useful.

I agree about the way digress.it allows you to navigate the comments
is quite nice. However, I know from experience by proxy that is much
more of a pain to get working on a document and of course, is limited
to wordpress.

It would be great to work out a nicer way of seeing a "narrative" to
the comments whilst also maintaining the great simplicity of the
annotator display. I have found that when I try to complicate this, it
starts looking messy. Further thought required!

Regarding the problem of things disappearing under the masthead, yes
this does happen and I did not find a way to get round it via CSS
(e.g. by changing display properties, z-index, that sort of thing). I
was considering instead of appending comments into the object they are
about, instead just finding the position on the page that they relate
to and putting them at the same position but appended to the body. I
do not actually know how annotator is doing it now though, I was
working on different code.
