We love how Harvard Law Review has implemented responsive footnotes as sidenotes, and would like to adopt a similar approach for our to be launched site, which uses dynamic content.

Maybe I could have done this with page by page layouts, but since we are using the Webflow CMS and dynamic content, we are struggling.
