Oooh, I like that better.

@Chris - I understand what an "aside" is, I just know for a fact that most people do not. Shannon's suggestion of "note" makes much more sense to me than my suggestion of "callout".

Long live <note/>!

Call it <note>. It may sound crude but it's hard to mistake its meaning.
