Does Confluence have a margin box/call-out box/sidebar notes feature?

I want to be able to add additional information about a point on a page, but I don't want to break up the main flow of text, so I was thinking of using some kind of call out box or margin note box to do this. I tried googling, but couldn't find any promising leads.

Does anyone know of any features in Confluence or plugins that might help?

I know about {Note} and the like, but they cross the entire page and, so, break up the text in a way that I don't want.

You could look into a product like Livefyre. It could probably be integrated fairly easily. It's probably just a couple lines of javascript that could be either put in a decorator or the custom html section.

I'm not looking for a comment box. This is more of a typographical thing.

Perhaps boxout is a more appropriate term for what I'm looking for.

Ah. Do you have a rough mockup of what you would like it to look like? Sounds like a bit of CSS could do what you want.
