LaTeX package for fixing margin notes

Authors using LaTeX to typeset books with significant margin material often run into the problem of long notes running off the bottom of the page. A typical workaround is to insert \vshift commands by hand, but this is a tedious process that is invalidated when pagination changes. Another workaround is memoir's \sidebar function, but this can be unsatisfying for short textual notes, and standard marginpars cannot be mixed with sidebars. This package implements a solution to make marginpars "just work" by keeping a list of floating inserts and arranging them intelligently in the output routine.


$ latex marginfix.ins
produces marginfix.sty, which can be installed in the texmf tree.
