Save annotations into database

P: 1
I need to save the annotations that other people do on the website. I need to save the selections of a text HTML in a database for retrieval later. Before users can view them whenever they want. I have used rangy.deserializeSelection () and rangy.SerializeSelection () but when reloading the page does not work.

I tried to create the range with the positions:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var srcObj = document.getElementById ("tam");
  2. var rangeObj = document.createRange ();
  3. rangeObj.selectNodeContents (srcObj);
  4. var textNode = rangeObj.firstChild;
  5. rangeObj.setStart (textNode, 1);
  6. rangeObj.setEnd (textNode, 1000);
but neither worked,because it is not plain text has html brands.

Text is a html in a div on my website

i think i don't get the issue quite well - when and under which circumstances an annotation should be saved? when the user writes them to the webpage? then just the typed in text needs to be saved?
