```Dear TeXers,

In a LaTeX document, I use \marginpar tot get marginal notes. I would like
to create similar marginal notes alongside some of the footnotes as well.
However, use of \marginpar inside \footnote leads to the error message
'float(s) lost'. In the FAQ I find this problem mentioned (one cannot use
one float (marginpar) within another float (footnote)), but not a solution.
So, my question is: How do I get a marginal note alongside a footnote?
