No javascript needed, you just need a either a floatting element (but
it won't be generic enough to put the annotation links in the margin
of a table, and aligned with a table row), or a positioned element.
All only with basic CSS.

This would be much like the navigation links found in Wikisource for
displaying the link to a specific page in the paged version of a book
or chapter, in terms of presentation. You only need javascript if the
attachment point of the positioned or floatting element falls in the
middle of a paragraph or block (but you can easily place the
attachment point just before the start of this paragraph or block to
avoid the problem, in that case only CSS will be enough).
