I got this green error:

There was more than 1 match for the text you tried to annotate. Only
the first match will be annotated. If you want to annotate a different
bit of the text please include more of the works arround the section.

But then this also more nasty red one:

user warning: Table 'stern_stern.annotations' doesn't exist query:
INSERT INTO annotations VALUES(421,27,'Vestibulum consectetuer
convallis nunc',1) in
/home/stern/public_html/includes/database.mysql.inc on line 167.
