If none of the HTML-based approaches seem workable, then Adobe Acrobat 
Standard can both capture a website to a single file, as well as embed 
readers' annotations within this file... here's an overview:

For multiple people to annotate this comp then in the simplest scenario 
they mail the file around... it's also possible to synchronize the 
annotations of various readers without sending the file around, but this 
requires a serverside component to integrate the changes and maintain
