I’m a bit confused by the “Determine exactly where in text a page break 
happens” section. I think the motivation sentence at the end should move 
to the beginning. But I also don’t quite understand why this is separate 
from the section above. Determining how far you’ve read and/or which page 
to display for particular content already seems covered by being able to 
determine the page(s) for elements. I’m guessing that you’re looking for 
finer-grained information - something like “Determine the page(s) that 
content inside an element is on” but I’m not entirely sure.

The next section has the phrase “a specific line in the DOM” which isn’t 
making sense to me. Should the sentence read “A mechanism for finding the 
source content in the DOM that is on a specific line”?

Finally, “being able to select a section of text and save it for later” is 
a bit ambiguous. Saving the text for later is not rare - there are all 
sorts of snippet-saving mechanisms that work on the web. Saving the 
selection within the document (not just the content of the selection) is 
what’s rare and needed, I think.

Thanks,

Alan
