Advanced columns

Hi everyone,

Trying this list in the hope of an answer:

I need to reproduce some rather old books, keeping as much of the original style intact as possible.

This means that all pages should be in two columns - one wide column with the main text, and a small column in the margin with keywords for the text. The keywords need to follow the main text, ie. a paragraph of key text should be locked to a paragraph in the main column in order to always display on the same page and position.

Is this possible at all with the OpenDoc format?
