Hi Mark,

Just to say, now that I'm back online, thanks very much for doing this, and
I'm still very much of opinion that it would be really cool to have it on
the front page of Open Shakespeare (although perhaps set by default to only
find annotations on Open Shakespeare in this case).

By the way, it all works in Chrome as well as Firefox.
