If the range of lines annotated is consecutive, you can do this with a
target and targetEnd pointer.

<anchor id="A1"/>This is the start of the passage to be annotated......
and this is its end<anchor id="A2"/>

<note target="A1" targetEnd="A2">These 9192  lines contain some of the
moist profoind insites ever encoontered...</target>
