<ex [side | stack]>
text of the example ...<<annotation text >>


Default. Places the annotation to the right of the example text and on the same line as the first line of the example.


Places the annotation below the example text.

Enclose the text of an annotation in double angle brackets, as follows: << this is the annotation text>>. An annotation can only be used within an <ex> tag. The side and stack parameters of the <ex> tag can be used to position the annotation in relation to the example text.

To insert a blank line in an annotation, use a space followed by an empty annotation, wordspace <<>>.
