The idea is to present the text-annotations in an HTML-table and inter-link the data points in the plot with their corresponding entries in the table, i.e. when clicking on a data point in the plot, the corresponding entry in the table should be highlighted or centered and vice-versa, when clicking on a table-entry, the corresponding point in the plot should be highlighted.

Is anybody aware of another solution for this problem (maybe based on image-maps and javascript)?

 My 'imagemaps' package?
