Hi Nikola,

For linguistic annotation of structured text documents, FLAT might be an option (https://github.com/proycon/flat); assuming you find a way of translating your documents to the FoLiA XML format (https://proycon.github.io/folia), which the annotation tool is designed for. The format specifically allows for document structure, including tables, and supports various types of linguistic annotation. It is, however, a solution that stores document and annotations together in a single integrated representation (so no separate stand-off file).
