How do I annotate epub's in a portable way?

I prefer to work with electronic academic texts in PDFs since I can annotate them in a portable way and easily store them in Zotero. I have a few texts, however, that I only have access to as epub's. What's the best way to annotate them so that I can return to those annotations at any point and search them in Zotero? [more inside]

A kindle/instapaper/readability/calibre question for you, gentle (electronic) reader

I'm having no luck transferring the *complete* web page of 197 responses to this question posed by edge.org (previously on the blue, I think) to my little friend, a Kindle Keyboard (aka Kindle 3). I've tried using both Instapaper and Readability, but I think there's code in the webpage to disable a complete scraping. I'm also attempting to use calibre, and if anybody has a recipe that downloads a plain web page (probably using something called "web2disk") in calibre, I'm all ears.

It's on the web, but I want it in my pocket. Sort of as a book.

What's the best / easiest way to process / format material I've downloaded or copied from the web to read on Apple's Books app? On a Kindle? If I format for the Kindle, would the material be synced on both devices if I use the Kindle iPhone app as my reader? I've been using Calibre to rip ePubs, but there has to be an easier way than what I'm doing, which takes forever. [more inside]
