Hypertext doesn't seem as much a free expanse when you have to start  
designing a usable page of it; then it becomes dissapointingly  
reminiscient of paper. :-)

Not, of course, that our inability to conceive of how to make it  
useful should necessarily exclude a feature like this, but does  
anyone have a suggestion on how to make nested annotations/citations  
easily readable and usable, and solve the issue of how to number them?
