[annotator-dev] Fwd: Basic workings

 What I am struggling with is whether what is should be experiencing out of
the box is a reasonably sound annotation experience or just a rough demo.
I have a feeling it is the former, but I am experiencing the latter, I
suspect due to misconfiguration and lack of investigation on my part.

Going back to my multiple annotation issue.  I have a document with
multiple h1s and if I add an annotation to a h1, it gets stored as /h1[1]
even if it is the nth h1 in the document. When the /h1[1] annotation is
applied to the document in the browser, the annotation appears on all h1s.
If I changed the document to have a singe h1 and multiple h2s, a comment on
the h1 heading also appears on the h2s and comments on the h2s appear on
the other h2s.  Same with paragraphs in fact.  The path is just not being
stored correctly for the annotated element.

Could someone just confirm that the paths (XPaths?) that annotator creates
are normally OK and what I am observing is not expected behavior?

In the documents I am working with, there is a <div id="main-wrapper"> that
wraps the document <body> and so I have used:

var content=$('#main-wrapper').children().annotator();
content.annotator('addPlugin, 'Store', { etc

to initialize the annotator.

Any of this sounding dodgy?
