Getting Marked to treat footnotes as "side-notes" or with a HTML5 "aside" tag?

I've attached an image that has an example of the effect I'm trying to achieve. Ideally I'd like to be able to paste a block of code into an existing Marked Custom CSS file and have Marked handle footnotes as in the example I've attached. Any tips?

    Been playing around with this, and I actually don't know if this can be achieved with a custom CSS style -- seems that footnotes would have to be handled by the MultiMarkdown processor in a different way. Thoughts?

    I think some JavaScript would be required to associate individual footnotes the way you want. It's doable, though…
