Hi there,

I'm writing a series of training workbooks in MS Word, and I've stumbled
across a problem.

I need to include "trainer's notes" in the workbook -- essentially, chunks
of content throughout the document that can be revealed when printing for a
trainer, and hidden when printing for a learner. Here's the kicker -- the
page numbering needs to be the same in both versions.

Using hidden fonts or footnotes affects page numbering. I've tried comments,
but (believe it or not) some of the trainer's notes are so ridiculously long
that the comments are longer than a page, and the end of the comment gets

I've been arguing that we need to rethink the content (trainer's notes
*that* long reflect a poor information design, I think!). But I might lose
that argument, so I need a solution. Can anyone recommend one?

Thanks in advance for your help,
