To invoke adding comments or annotations to a page the user first adds a bookmarklet to their browser that points to our application. This is accomplished by dragging a peculiar looking link that contains our code; to the users Links bar as shown below:
Inside the Bookmarklet we have code that executes when the user selects the bookmarklet
Annotator application and passes a query string to the frames.asp page. The
querystring contains the location of the document the user wants to add
annotations to and looks like
The frames.asp page checks to see if the querystring is
present and attempts to load the page into it's main frame
* A note about framesets:
If the document the user wants to edit, is itself in a frameset, the application will attempt to load the whole frameset. For the application to work properly the document must not be included in a frameset.
What about the bookmarklet link?
