Thank you for this link.

As far as I see, Annotea need a special browser (amaya being the only 
one at this time) and a special server.

This is not what we have in mind. The annotating system we want to have 
should be able to be used by every visitor (it should be lynx-proof).

The latter link is unfortunately dead, but I got the Software from a Wiki


I'll have to evaluate this...

Nevertheless, out student *must* build such a system because we offered 
this a a graduate internship to which he applied.
