Guys in Kiev (TM) ;-) designed an absolutely excellent method of inserting text with their virtual keyboard. Have a look at this description:

Use Translate.google.com
the coloured picture perfectly illustrates the use of the keyboard. It is very intuitive and very forgiving, so even if you press wrong initial button, you do not hav eto abandon trying to type that character, you can move around the entire keyboard.

With notes, you enter notes mode by pressing a button (that you can reconfigure to your tastes), highlight text you want to clip or annotate and then you can enter the note. You retrieve your notes not as a complete book with your hightlghts but as the fragments of text (or bitmap screenshots?, I am really not sure at the moment) from the book together with your annotations.
