Hey Tony,

Thanks a lot, I got it all to work as I need it

Here is what I did

<xsl:template match="p">
<fo:change-bar-begin change-bar-class="CBP-{generate-id()}" change-bar-offset="14mm">
<fo:float float="outside">
<fo:block><xsl:value-of select="no"/></fo:block>
<fo:block text-align="justify" >
<xsl:value-of select="al"/>
<fo:change-bar-end change-bar-class="CBP-{generate-id()}"/>

And I give the margin where I want the no to appear an extra 14mm
(on the right for odd and on the left for even)
Works a charm, thanks

Antenna House, as an extension, allows fo:float within fo:change-bar-begin
[1], so use that with 'change-bar-placement="outside".

You can use 'text-align="outside"' [3] to align the numbers to the outside
of the page.

You may also be able to use Antenna House's float extension [2], but it's
not clear to me whether or not 'sidenote' applies only to CSS.
