Uses of marginal notes

can be used to draw attention to certain text passages by marking them
with a vertical bar in the margin. The example marking this paragraph was made by

in the ¬rst line. By de¬ning a macro \query as shown below

we can produce queries. For example LTEX. This query is produced with the following
For example \query{\LaTeX}{Hey!\\ Look}{}. This ...

Style parameters for marginal notes

The following style parameters may be changed to rede¬ne how marginal notes appear:
Determines the width of the margin box.
Sets the separation between the margin box and the edge of the main
Is the smallest vertical distance between two marginal notes.

These parameters are all lengths and are assigned new values as usual with the
\setlength command.


Scholarly works usually group notes at the end of each chapter or at the end of the
document. These are called endnotes. Endnotes are not supported in standard LTEX, but

they can be created in several ways.
The package endnotes (by John Lavagnino) typesets endnotes in a way similar to
footnotes. It uses an extra external ¬le, with extension .ent, to hold the text of the
endnotes. This ¬le can be deleted after the run since a new version is generated each
With this package you can output your footnotes as endnotes by simply giving the

The user interface for endnotes is very similar to the one for footnotes after sub-
stituting the word “foot” for “end”. The following example shows the principle of the
use of endnotes, where you save text in memory with the \endnote command, and then
typeset all accumulated text material at a point in the document controlled by the user.

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license
document, but changing it is not allowed.


The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook, or other functional and
useful document free in the sense of freedom: to assure everyone the effective freedom
to copy and redistribute it, with or without modifying it, either commercially or non-
commercially. Secondarily, this License preserves for the author and publisher a way
to get credit for their work, while not being considered responsible for modi¬cations
made by others.

This License is a kind of “copyleft”, which means that derivative works of the doc-
ument must themselves be free in the same sense. It complements the GNU General
Public License, which is a copyleft license designed for free software.

We have designed this License in order to use it for manuals for free software, because
free software needs free documentation: a free program should come with manuals
providing the same freedoms that the software does. But this License is not limited to
software manuals; it can be used for any textual work, regardless of subject matter or
whether it is published as a printed book. We recommend this License principally for
works whose purpose is instruction or reference.


This License applies to any manual or other work, in any medium, that contains a
notice placed by the copyright holder saying it can be distributed under the terms
of this License. Such a notice grants a world-wide, royalty-free license, unlimited
in duration, to use that work under the conditions stated herein. The “Document”,
below, refers to any such manual or work. Any member of the public is a licensee,
and is addressed as “you”. You accept the license if you copy, modify or distribute
the work in a way requiring permission under copyright law.

A “Modi¬ed Version” of the Document means any work containing the Document or
a portion of it, either copied verbatim, or with modi¬cations and/or translated into
another language.


A “Secondary Section” is a named appendix or a front-matter section of the Doc-
ument that deals exclusively with the relationship of the publishers or authors of
the Document to the Document™s overall subject (or to related matters) and contains
nothing that could fall directly within that overall subject. (Thus, if the Document is
in part a textbook of mathematics, a Secondary Section may not explain any mathe-
matics.) The relationship could be a matter of historical connection with the subject
or with related matters, or of legal, commercial, philosophical, ethical or political
position regarding them.

The “Invariant Sections” are certain Secondary Sections whose titles are designated,
as being those of Invariant Sections, in the notice that says that the Document is
released under this License. If a section does not ¬t the above de¬nition of Secondary
then it is not allowed to be designated as Invariant. The Document may contain zero
Invariant Sections. If the Document does not identify any Invariant Sections then
there are none.

The “Cover Texts” are certain short passages of text that are listed, as Front-Cover
Texts or Back-Cover Texts, in the notice that says that the Document is released under
this License. A Front-Cover Text may be at most 5 words, and a Back-Cover Text
may be at most 25 words.

A “Transparent” copy of the Document means a machine-readable copy, represented
in a format whose speci¬cation is available to the general public, that is suitable
for revising the document straightforwardly with generic text editors or (for images
composed of pixels) generic paint programs or (for drawings) some widely available
drawing editor, and that is suitable for input to text formatters or for automatic trans-
lation to a variety of formats suitable for input to text formatters. A copy made in
an otherwise Transparent ¬le format whose markup, or absence of markup, has been
arranged to thwart or discourage subsequent modi¬cation by readers is not Transpar-
ent. An image format is not Transparent if used for any substantial amount of text.
A copy that is not “Transparent” is called “Opaque”.

Examples of suitable formats for Transparent copies include plain ASCII without
markup, Texinfo input format, LTEX input format, SGML or XML using a publicly

available DTD, and standard-conforming simple HTML, PostScript or PDF designed
for human modi¬cation. Examples of transparent image formats include PNG, XCF
and JPG. Opaque formats include proprietary formats that can be read and edited
only by proprietary word processors, SGML or XML for which the DTD and/or pro-
cessing tools are not generally available, and the machine-generated HTML, PostScript
or PDF produced by some word processors for output purposes only.

The “Title Page” means, for a printed book, the title page itself, plus such following
pages as are needed to hold, legibly, the material this License requires to appear in the
title page. For works in formats which do not have any title page as such, “Title Page”
means the text near the most prominent appearance of the work™s title, preceding the
beginning of the body of the text.

A section “Entitled XYZ” means a named subunit of the Document whose title either
is precisely XYZ or contains XYZ in parentheses following text that translates XYZ
in another language. (Here XYZ stands for a speci¬c section name mentioned below,
such as “Acknowledgements”, “Dedications”, “Endorsements”, or “History”.) To
“Preserve the Title” of such a section when you modify the Document means that it

remains a section “Entitled XYZ” according to this de¬nition.

The Document may include Warranty Disclaimers next to the notice which states that
this License applies to the Document. These Warranty Disclaimers are considered to
be included by reference in this License, but only as regards disclaiming warranties:
any other implication that these Warranty Disclaimers may have is void and has no
effect on the meaning of this License.


You may copy and distribute the Document in any medium, either commercially or
noncommercially, provided that this License, the copyright notices, and the license
notice saying this License applies to the Document are reproduced in all copies, and
that you add no other conditions whatsoever to those of this License. You may not
use technical measures to obstruct or control the reading or further copying of the
copies you make or distribute. However, you may accept compensation in exchange
for copies. If you distribute a large enough number of copies you must also follow
the conditions in section 3.

You may also lend copies, under the same conditions stated above, and you may
publicly display copies.


If you publish printed copies (or copies in media that commonly have printed cov-
ers) of the Document, numbering more than 100, and the Document™s license notice
requires Cover Texts, you must enclose the copies in covers that carry, clearly and
legibly, all these Cover Texts: Front-Cover Texts on the front cover, and Back-Cover
Texts on the back cover. Both covers must also clearly and legibly identify you as the
publisher of these copies. The front cover must present the full title with all words
of the title equally prominent and visible. You may add other material on the covers
in addition. Copying with changes limited to the covers, as long as they preserve the
title of the Document and satisfy these conditions, can be treated as verbatim copying
in other respects.

If the required texts for either cover are too voluminous to ¬t legibly, you should put
the ¬rst ones listed (as many as ¬t reasonably) on the actual cover, and continue the
rest onto adjacent pages.

If you publish or distribute Opaque copies of the Document numbering more than
100, you must either include a machine-readable Transparent copy along with each
Opaque copy, or state in or with each Opaque copy a computer-network location
from which the general network-using public has access to download using public-
standard network protocols a complete Transparent copy of the Document, free of
added material. If you use the latter option, you must take reasonably prudent steps,
when you begin distribution of Opaque copies in quantity, to ensure that this Trans-
parent copy will remain thus accessible at the stated location until at least one year
after the last time you distribute an Opaque copy (directly or through your agents or
retailers) of that edition to the public.

It is requested, but not required, that you contact the authors of the Document well

before redistributing any large number of copies, to give them a chance to provide
you with an updated version of the Document.


You may copy and distribute a Modi¬ed Version of the Document under the condi-
tions of sections 2 and 3 above, provided that you release the Modi¬ed Version under
precisely this License, with the Modi¬ed Version ¬lling the role of the Document, thus
licensing distribution and modi¬cation of the Modi¬ed Version to whoever possesses
a copy of it. In addition, you must do these things in the Modi¬ed Version:
(A) Use in the Title Page (and on the covers, if any) a title distinct from that of the
Document, and from those of previous versions (which should, if there were any,
be listed in the History section of the Document). You may use the same title as a
previous version if the original publisher of that version gives permission.
(B) List on the Title Page, as authors, one or more persons or entities responsible for
authorship of the modi¬cations in the Modi¬ed Version, together with at least
¬ve of the principal authors of the Document (all of its principal authors, if it has
fewer than ¬ve), unless they release you from this requirement.
(C) State on the Title page the name of the publisher of the Modi¬ed Version, as the
(D) Preserve all the copyright notices of the Document.
(E) Add an appropriate copyright notice for your modi¬cations adjacent to the other
copyright notices.
(F) Include, immediately after the copyright notices, a license notice giving the public
permission to use the Modi¬ed Version under the terms of this License, in the form
shown in the Addendum below.
(G) Preserve in that license notice the full lists of Invariant Sections and required Cover
Texts given in the Document™s license notice.
(H) Include an unaltered copy of this License.
(I) Preserve the section Entitled “History”, Preserve its Title, and add to it an item
stating at least the title, year, new authors, and publisher of the Modi¬ed Version
as given on the Title Page. If there is no section Entitled “History” in the Docu-
ment, create one stating the title, year, authors, and publisher of the Document as
given on its Title Page, then add an item describing the Modi¬ed Version as stated
in the previous sentence.
(J) Preserve the network location, if any, given in the Document for public access to
a Transparent copy of the Document, and likewise the network locations given
in the Document for previous versions it was based on. These may be placed
in the “History” section. You may omit a network location for a work that was
published at least four years before the Document itself, or if the original publisher
of the version it refers to gives permission.
(K) For any section Entitled “Acknowledgements” or “Dedications”, Preserve the Ti-
tle of the section, and preserve in the section all the substance and tone of each of
the contributor acknowledgements and/or dedications given therein.
(L) Preserve all the Invariant Sections of the Document, unaltered in their text and
in their titles. Section numbers or the equivalent are not considered part of the
section titles.
(M) Delete any section Entitled “Endorsements”. Such a section may not be included
in the Modi¬ed Version.
(N) Do not retitle any existing section to be Entitled “Endorsements” or to con¬‚ict in
title with any Invariant Section.

(O) Preserve any Warranty Disclaimers.

If the Modi¬ed Version includes new front-matter sections or appendices that qualify
as Secondary Sections and contain no material copied from the Document, you may
at your option designate some or all of these sections as invariant. To do this, add
their titles to the list of Invariant Sections in the Modi¬ed Version™s license notice.
These titles must be distinct from any other section titles.

You may add a section Entitled “Endorsements”, provided it contains nothing but en-
dorsements of your Modi¬ed Version by various parties”for example, statements of
peer review or that the text has been approved by an organization as the authoritative
de¬nition of a standard.

You may add a passage of up to ¬ve words as a Front-Cover Text, and a passage of up
to 25 words as a Back-Cover Text, to the end of the list of Cover Texts in the Modi¬ed
Version. Only one passage of Front-Cover Text and one of Back-Cover Text may be
added by (or through arrangements made by) any one entity. If the Document already
includes a cover text for the same cover, previously added by you or by arrangement
made by the same entity you are acting on behalf of, you may not add another; but
you may replace the old one, on explicit permission from the previous publisher that
added the old one.

The author(s) and publisher(s) of the Document do not by this License give permission
to use their names for publicity for or to assert or imply endorsement of any Modi¬ed


You may combine the Document with other documents released under this License,
under the terms de¬ned in section 4 above for modi¬ed versions, provided that you
include in the combination all of the Invariant Sections of all of the original docu-
ments, unmodi¬ed, and list them all as Invariant Sections of your combined work in
its license notice, and that you preserve all their Warranty Disclaimers.

The combined work need only contain one copy of this License, and multiple identical
Invariant Sections may be replaced with a single copy. If there are multiple Invariant
Sections with the same name but different contents, make the title of each such sec-
tion unique by adding at the end of it, in parentheses, the name of the original author
or publisher of that section if known, or else a unique number. Make the same ad-
justment to the section titles in the list of Invariant Sections in the license notice of
the combined work.

In the combination, you must combine any sections Entitled “History” in the various
original documents, forming one section Entitled “History”; likewise combine any
sections Entitled “Acknowledgements”, and any sections Entitled “Dedications”. You
must delete all sections Entitled “Endorsements.”


You may make a collection consisting of the Document and other documents released
under this License, and replace the individual copies of this License in the various

documents with a single copy that is included in the collection, provided that you
follow the rules of this License for verbatim copying of each of the documents in all
other respects.

You may extract a single document from such a collection, and distribute it individu-
ally under this License, provided you insert a copy of this License into the extracted
document, and follow this License in all other respects regarding verbatim copying of
that document.


A compilation of the Document or its derivatives with other separate and independent
documents or works, in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called
an “aggregate” if the copyright resulting from the compilation is not used to limit
the legal rights of the compilation™s users beyond what the individual works permit.
When the Document is included an aggregate, this License does not apply to the other
works in the aggregate which are not themselves derivative works of the Document.

If the Cover Text requirement of section 3 is applicable to these copies of the Doc-
ument, then if the Document is less than one half of the entire aggregate, the Docu-
ment™s Cover Texts may be placed on covers that bracket the Document within the
aggregate, or the electronic equivalent of covers if the Document is in electronic form.
Otherwise they must appear on printed covers that bracket the whole aggregate.


Translation is considered a kind of modi¬cation, so you may distribute translations of
the Document under the terms of section 4. Replacing Invariant Sections with trans-
lations requires special permission from their copyright holders, but you may include
translations of some or all Invariant Sections in addition to the original versions of
these Invariant Sections. You may include a translation of this License, and all the
license notices in the Document, and any Warrany Disclaimers, provided that you
also include the original English version of this License and the original versions of
those notices and disclaimers. In case of a disagreement between the translation and
the original version of this License or a notice or disclaimer, the original version will

If a section in the Document is Entitled “Acknowledgements”, “Dedications”, or
“History”, the requirement (section 4) to Preserve its Title (section 1) will typically
require changing the actual title.


You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Document except as expressly
provided for under this License. Any other attempt to copy, modify, sublicense or
distribute the Document is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in
full compliance.


The Free Software Foundation may publish new, revised versions of the GNU Free
Documentation License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit
to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
