Simply insert a mailto link into every HTML page (different mail address per author, if possible).
All the reviewers have to do is click the link, and send an email.
I have used it, and it works better than "paper" reviews. On paper, reviewers tend to find the odd
typo or missing full stop, without giving any fundamental critique on the overall structure, contents,
Since they now have to type what they think, they spend less time on details, and get more to the point.
And they can simply cut and paste the bits they want to comment about, if necessary.

Our Tech Pubs department has been told to migrate away from paper
document reviews to online reviews. In other words, documents would
be provided online in HTML and reviewers would have to, somehow,
provide comments without using paper.
Personally, I am having difficulty imagining how this will work. Do
any of you out there do online reviews? How do you handle them?
