Want to highlight text, clip a video, or select a section of an image? This module is CCK nodereference on steroids. Annotation Field references not just a node, but a specific revision, field, and intra-field information (like a portion of text).
AnnotationField, itself, is the framework for Annotator field modules to annotate specific field types. Included in this module are three sub-modules:
- /videoannotation (currently clips youtube videos with the emfield module)
- /imageannotation (currently allows box selection of images from the image module)
- /textannotation (currently works on the Body field of a node and CCK text fields)
This is still in development and unstable, but feedback and use cases are welcome. Check out the demo site, to see what's currently doable.

Text annotation currently uses code from the Marginalia project
