[open-humanities] Annotation system for books and so on in Wordpress

Hi Iain,

Good point to raise. There have been a variety of wordpress annotation
plugins (and we've used several of them over the years). The big difference
compared to what we are doing is that those plugins tend to mess with the
text in some way in the other and don't follow the approach of Textus of
separating text and annotation (and markup) very cleanly.

BTW we are pretty close in having the textus viewer working. I know I was
the one leading on this but I've been rather pressed on other matters
recently so if anyone wanted to jump in and take this on that would be
fantastic and I'd definitely lend a helping hand and guidance:
