  annotate
  
     1.  Extra information associated with a
     particular point in a document or program.  Annotations may be
     added either by a compiler or by the programmer.  They are
     not usually essential to the correct function of the program
     but give hints to improve performance.
  
     2.  A new commentary node linked to an existing
     node.  If readers, as well as authors, can annotate nodes,
     then they can immediately provide feedback if the information
     is misleading, out of date or plain wrong.
