In the initial draft, I always insert a comment next to information I'm not
certain about. Comments are in parentheses, marked as "Comment", surrounded
by a few asterisks. Then, when I print it out and give to the developers,
they immediately see my questions and (mostly) respond to them. Since I've
switched to this practice, I've had much more success getting questions
answered. I work in Frame, so I mark the comment with conditional text
("Comment") so that I can either show it, or hide it.

do you mark it as such or let it blend in with the good info?
