Highlighting a Span of Text

Anno-Specific-2
Use case
A user wishes to highlight a span of text in a publication for emphasis. The exact nature of the presentation of that emphasis may or may not be important to maintain, this use case assumes that it is not, but see Anno_Advanced_3. The emphasis might be to mark a passage of particular importance, a typo or other mistake, something to cite in another document, to bring to the attention of other readers, or to mark two such selections for comparison (see Anno_Specific_6). The user may wish to share the highlight, and certainly wishes it to be accessible on multiple platforms to which she has access.
Requirement(s)
* Ability to describe or identify positions within text
* Ability to give two positions (start/end) to create a range
* Annotations with an optional body (or comment) rather than mandatory
* Ability to share between systems
