It will be difficult to extract this information from the HTML. I'd 
prefer that you do the opposite: copy the code line into your report. 
For instance:

# SC 1.3.1
  - H42: <h1>some text</h1>
  - H42: <h2>another text</h2>
  - G115: ...

Yes, please. I know it is a lot of work but necessary to be sure.

As above, copy the code rather than the line numbers.

The numbers are sufficient, I'll search and replace the text and links.

Don't think so. Please disregard the annotations for now. Once we have 
the complete report we can then select specific ones for annotations.

Thanks for working on this! Please pass along a first iteration of the 
report (the template page only for now) rather than waiting until the 
end to get feedback.

Best,
