http://markup.io/ uses bookmarks instead of downloading a browser
plug-in, so I guess you could just embed the bookmarks into your own
page or include the toolbar as the page loads/user clicks a button
instead of having the user install the bookmarks to their browser
favourites first, I guess you want the visitor to send you their
annotation though too?
