So, right here it tells you you can host the annotations file yourself  https://developers.google.com/custom-search/docs/annotations#host

I've tried going to the control panel and uploading an annotations file with an include like they demonstrate
<GoogleCustomizations>
 
<Include type="Annotations" href="http://www.mysite.com/working_annotations_file.xml" />
</GoogleCustomizations>
//lol my text is now stuck like this

It accepts the upload, but doesn't work.

When I click "View XML In Browser" I get this:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<Annotations start="0" num="1" total="1">
  <Annotation about="cf.mediabright.com/assets/files/root_annotations.xml" timestamp="0x0004c2d588444ff5" href="CjRjZi5tZWRpYWJyaWdodC5jb20vYXNzZXRzL2ZpbGVzL3Jvb3RfYW5ub3RhdGlvbnMueG1sEPWfkcLY2rAC" feed="true">
    <AdditionalData attribute="original_url" value="http://cf.mediabright.com/assets/files/root_annotations.xml" />
    <AdditionalData attribute="file" value="root.xml" />
  </Annotation>
</Annotations>
I also tried using annotations feed, didn't work either.
Uploading http://www.mysite.com/working_annotations_file.xml does work, but I want it hosted myself so I can edit it
Am I doing something wrong? Halp!
