Morning, Whirlers,

How do you folks handle sidebar notes and info?

Let's say I'm working on Topic A in a user guide. I have information related to Topic A, but not directly.

This information doesn't really fit elsewhere, so it needs to be in Topic A, but stand out just a bit. I put this "sidebar" information in a table in Topic A.

Users should be aware of this information but not get hung up on it. I labeled the table as a "Note." Not sure what else to do here. Suggestions?
