How can I present PDFs annotated via popups in a browser window?

Hi all! I am looking for something that I think should exist but I can't seem to be able to find it. I am looking for a way to put a PDF on a webpage with annotation markers, so that when a user clicks on the annotation marker, a pop up box opens up with the annotation comment. For example, imagine a PDF of a first edition of "Alice in Wonderland" or the Bible that you could click on and notes about the phrase you clicked on would appear in a pop up window. The seems a useful bit of technology but I've looked around the web and I've been unable to find any pages like this. I am looking for two things: (1) Examples of such pages currently online; and (2) A software program that would create such pages. Thanks in advance!

Is it the stylus or the screen?

I got myself a Lenovo tablet on super sale for Christmas. I'm interested in using it to read and annotate pdf files (mainly journal articles). The pdf reader app I'm using has the ability for freehand writing, and I'd like to try that out for margin notes (some of the papers are technical with lots of symbols, so writing is easier than typing). I bought a stylus that had pretty good reviews on Amazon, but I have to push down to make it work which is ok for highlighting, but tiring for writing. Is this a limitation of this tablet's screen? Or is there a stylus that is easier to use? [more inside]
