In TopLeaf the term Note refers to various objects that may appear outside the main content sequence. The types of note are:

  • footnote — a note referenced within a page and appearing at the bottom of that page

  • sidenote — a note placed beside a column adjacent to a reference point

  • running head — one or more continuation lines placed at the top of a column, to inform the reader which major sections are currently in force

  • float — an object that will always appear at the top or bottom of a page, allowing other content to flow around it.
