### Style file for reports on Latex-submitted documents

#### (feel free to copy, it's not mine)

Allows inserting cross-referenced note marks with margin pointers for each note.

Posted August 8, 2001

### Usage:

with \usepackage{referee} added in the top matter of the file submitted for reviewing, the following commands are available to the reviewer:

\referee placed near the beginning of the submitted file, but after the \maketitle command if exists in the original, this adds a new page at the end of the file with the title Notes'', and restarts the page numbers with roman page numbering.

\note{referee's remark} placed in the body of the text, but not in titles, abstracts and other floats, or mathmode, marks the original text with a numbered end-note mark, puts an arrow with the same number in the margin, and adds a numbered end-note at the end of the document with the referee's remark.

In order to keep numbering in the original intact, notes inserted in sections, theorems etc. must appear after the \label command.

### Problems:

• the limitations listed above clearly need addressing by a real expert.
• I have not investigated any legal or copyrighting issues.
• If Latex errors occur in the notes, the only way to locate them is to remove the \AtEndDocuent lines temporarily. There should be a \RefereeDebug mode allowing this automatically, but this is not written yet. Maybe the \note command could be made to leave a trace in the log file allowing one to trace errors.

counters used: endnotecounter, endendnotecounter.

### Usage example:

(Original paper in black, referee's comments in red. See the result: example.dvi.)

\maketitle

\referee

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

The referee feels that (s)he has read this line somewhere, but (s)he
can't quite recall when. It would be useful if the author could add a
reference to the original source here.

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the
face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the
waters.
\note{Define Spirit''.}

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from
the darkness.

And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the
evening and the morning were the first day.

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and
let it divide the waters from the waters.

And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the
firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was
so.

And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning
were the second day.

And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto
one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the
waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed,
and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in
itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his
kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his
kind: and God saw that it was good.

And the evening and the morning were the third day.

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to
divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for
seasons, and for days, and years:

And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light
upon the earth: and it was so.

And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and
the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the
earth,

And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light
from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature
that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open
firmament of heaven.

And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth,
which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every
winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the
waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his
kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his
kind:  and it was so.

And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after
their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his
kind:  and God saw that it was good.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let
them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the
air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every
creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
\note{
I believe such human-centric views are not appropriate for this journal;
He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named should soften the language here.
}

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he
him; male and female created he them.

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and
multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion
over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every
living thing that moveth upon the earth.

And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which
is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the
fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to
every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have
given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very
good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
