```----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Package marginnote
Licence: LPPL
Version: 2012/03/29 v1.1i
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
This package provides the command \marginnote that may be used instead of
\marginpar at almost every place, where \marginpar cannot be used, e.g.
inside floats, footnotes, frames made with framed package ...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you have a distribution of marginnote with an archive containing the
files

doc/
doc/latex/
doc/latex/marginnote/
doc/latex/marginnote/marginnote.pdf
source/
source/latex/
source/latex/marginnote/
source/latex/marginnote/marginnote.dtx
source/latex/marginnote/marginnote.ins
tex/
tex/latex/
tex/latex/marginnote/
tex/latex/marginnote/marginnote.sty

you may simply extract this archive at your local texmf tree (local TDS tree)
that may be e.g. C:\localtexmf or /usr/local/share/texmf or
/usr/TeX/texmf-local.  On some systems you may ask for the local TDS tree
using: `kpsewhich -var-value=TEXMFLOCAL'. After extraction you should update
your File Name DataBase e.g. using the MiKTeX Options dialog or texhash.

If the files are at a root directory marginnote the distributor has changed my
original distribution archive and you have to copy the files yourself into
the appropriate directories at one of your texmf trees and update your File
Name DataBase.

If you instead of this have only the files marginnote.dtx, marginnote.ins
marginnote.pdf (optional) and README, you have to call:
tex marginnote.ins

NOTE: README is part of the sources of the Work.  To produce a legal and
valid distribution of the Work, you need only the source files
`marginnote.dtx', `marginnote.ins', and `README'.  You are not allowed to
distribute any of these without the others.  You are not allowed to
distribute the generated files `marginnote.sty' or `marginnote.pdf' without
these source files.  See LPPL for definition of `distribution'!
