A method to show annotations dynamically in document authoring system
Document authoring systems such as word processor or html authoring tool often shows some annotations of a certain region on their editing window. The annotations are not included in the final output like printed documents or web browser's window, but are shown in the authoring systems to aid users to edit the documents.
To show both annotations and actual document's content in one window, usually there were two ways to show annotations of the document authoring system: overlay annotations on top of the document's content
