Annotations are stored in a .ANN file, usually in the same place as the help
file. There is no easy way to print out this file because it's not stored in
a text format. After creating the annotations you should be able to include
the .ann file when you deliver the help file. To be sure though, I would
write-protect this file first.

Annotations are quirky and not very useful for most situations. I'd like to
find out how many techwrls regularly use annotations.
