Dan, that is certainly impressive, it looks like a quite reliable method
for annotating mutable digital documents.
The advantage of printed material is that changes between the original
source and proofread text are close to nil.
On the other hand, data availability is less than on purely digital
documents, therefore input text should be kept to a minimum.
