Reply to: Marginalia or Floating Text?

I started dabbling with marginalia last week.  We are trying to create training materials with a student and instructor pdf format. The instructor pdf needs to have extra notes but that will not affect the page count so it’s always in sync with the student guides.  I posted about this on the dita-users yahoo group and got a good response from user renderxxep that pointed me to the 7th example on http://www.renderx.com/usecasestest.html it shows just what you are asking. If you know your way around the pdf customizations it’s possible, but tricky.  Hardest part is getting the margins just right.
