I've used http://a.nnotate.com/ for this several times. You can leave comments in line with the text, respond to other comments, display/print the comments in different ways, and one of my favorite things is that the people you send the link to don't have to create an account.

Subject: Re: [CODE4LIB] Tool for feedback on document
Commentpress and digress.it are two Wordpress variants that offer
paragraph-by-paragraph threaded commenting. Commentpress is quite old (we
used it here: http://www.lib.umich.edu/islamic/ in a collaborative
cataloging project sponsored by CLIR and funded by Mellon).
