Mike,
        your idea of differentiating the annotations and netnames is good,
that is one issue I have fought in the past because on a print you can't
tell the difference. Even onscreen I had an issue because someone had made
them the same colors. On Screen you can make them different colors. On a
print you can make different fonts and different sizes to allow you to tell
the difference.
