A marginal note contains additional nonessential information. It explains some context, sheds light on a detail or speculates on a given topic etc.

A marginal note accompanies the text without interruption, if the screen is big enough, because it’s placed in the right margin. There, the editor can move the note up to match a line the note is referring to.

On small screens a note has to follow after the associated text block.

Syntax

{{< mnote up=11 >}}
When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains, she had a last view 
back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove, the headline of Alphabet 
Village and the subline of her own road, the Line Lane. 
{.p-blind}
{{< /mnote >}}

Layout

There are short and long marginal notes. On screens, which allow for three columns or more, their layout is identical. On mobile screens long notes are partly hidden and can be fully opened and partly hidden again.

Short Note

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.

Long Note

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.

It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life. One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar.
