Request for feature:
 User should be able to hilight some text on page. It could be hilighted text
background, anchor or arrow-image pointing to something. Also it whould be great
to add some simple notes (like title= do) to some items.
 And there should be simple way of transfering your hilight to other person. It
could be "Mail page with hilight/comments" or some special URL
(http://serv/page.hmtl#-moz-hilight-123,4234,5435... ?)

 Reason - On long pages it is essential to mark part of interest to you or
someone else. Editors could mark text in own site page to be corrected and send
this hilight-link to webmaster. etc.

 Possible solution.
Really do not know :(
Something with DOM. Some way of including <a name=SPECIAL class=hilight> .. </a>
to the node of interest (so page whould scroll to this place) and some absolutly
positioned arrow-image, which will get X,Y from that SPECIAL anchor (to be
correct with any font size and window size).

 It May be external RDF file ( "Export page/site hilights..." ) with all
hilights description.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
For page annotations, it's a dupe of bug 12305. I've seen a request for a
hilighter too, but I can't find it back.
