We do not do online review here, but I suggest you look at Adobe's
Acrobat Exchange, which works with PDF files. The following excerpt
is from the Exchange help file:
You can create notes on any page in a document and
position them anywhere on that page. Notes can
hold up to 5000 Roman characters. By default,
note labels use the registered Acrobat user's name
(Windows and UNIX) or the computer's owner name
(Macintosh). If you are one of several reviewers of a
document, your annotations will be distinguished
by label. By changing the default note color (yel-low),
you can also color code your annotations. You
can change the default note label and color, or you
can change labels and colors on a note-by-note

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?
