What would be the best way to format a side note in Frame? It's information that is useful but not everyone needs to know. I'm envisioning a box with a shaded background to set it apart from the regular text. Would I do this with a different text flow? I'm not having ANY luck with web research on how to do this in Frame. I could probably figure it out and sort of duct-tape it, but I want to do it in the best way.
