Re:  [XSL-FO] marginal notes
Yes Tony, I did, sorry for not replying
Have been testing the suggestions found here and on the Antenna House list,
but I can't seem to get it right on 6.3 MR1
need to install the recent 6.4 first and will come back then

Thanks for taking the time to respond... and follow up
will keep you posted
