Re: Paragraph-Based Quotation in Place of PDF/Page-Based

Maybe one would have to use double references as when referring to a page
in a PDF file, where one often states both the PDF's page number and the
page number of the physical document that has been scanned. I don't think
that would necessarily be a bad thing as long as a standard is set for
how it is to be done. We already have a system for stating first edition
and used edition of a book. Clarity and usability are keywords here.

BTW, was paragraph reference (and also exact reference on word-level) not
one of the features of Ted Nelson's original concept of hypertext?
