       This group node delays rendering its children until all other nodes have  been  traversed,
       turning  off  depth  buffer  comparisons  first.  The  result is that the shapes under the
       annotation node are rendered on top of the rest of the scene. This node  is  derived  from
       SoSeparator, so it saves and restores traversal state for all actions.

       Note  that if more than one annotation node is present in a graph, the order in which they
       are traversed determines the stacking order — later nodes are rendered on top  of  earlier
       ones.  Also  note that since depth buffer comparisons are disabled, complex 3D objects may
       not be rendered correctly when used under annotation nodes.

       Also note that the annotation node does nothing special when picking along a ray. That is,
       it  does not modify the sorting order of intersected objects based on which ones are under
       annotation nodes. If your application uses annotation nodes and you want  to  ensure  that
       objects  under  them  are picked "in front of" other objects, you can tell the pick action
       that you want to pick all objects along the ray and then scan through  the  paths  in  the
       resulting  picked point instances to see if any of them passes through an annotation node.
       Your program can then decide what to do in such a case.


          Creates an annotation node with default settings.

     static SoType       getClassTypeId()
          Returns type identifier for this class.
