The annotations in the spec were incomplete -- they only covered the parts 
of the spec that are used to generate the developers.whatwg.org version, 
and do not include things like Workers or the Web Sockets API. So when I 
collapsed the WHATWG specs into just the one, rather than having the HTML 
spec and the "complete.html" spec, I removed the highlights feature.

If it's something you'd find useful even in its incomplete state, I can 
add an alternative style sheet or make the ?style=highlight URL show the 
annotations that are present, though. It wouldn't be something we'd 
advertise but if it's useful for you I'm happy to keep it around.

Things that are impossible just take longer.   `._.-(,_..'--(,_..'`-.;.'
