Mike Lee has suggested a way of displaying the 'annotation' icons without disrupting the DOM. This would be a great improvement.
This is the the Annozilla project, designed to view and create annotations associated with a web page, as defined by the W3C Annotea project. The idea is to store annotations as RDF on a server, using XPointer (or at least XPointer-like constructs) to identify the region of the document being annotated.
The intention of Annozilla is to use Mozilla's native facilities to manipulate annotation data - its built-in RDF handling to parse the annotations, and nsIXmlHttpRequest to submit data when creating annotations.
You can also see some screenshots - an example of the sidebar in action, and the preferences panel.
Please use the bug reporting mechanism, not this 'User Notes' section, to report bugs in Annozilla.
