My current project is a translation of a classic law primer from 
Arabic. In the future, I would like to add commentary to the complete 

A typical Arabic commentary is of the format
	(A) abcdef (B) abcdef ...
where the primary text is printed within parenthesis and the commentary 

It is common to have the primary text printed alone in the margin and 
the commentary (along with the primary text) within the main text 

I looked at LEDMAC. From what I can tell, I could use LEDMAC for this 
if I can turn off line numbering, footnote reference numbers, and print 
the entire basic text (chunk by chunk) in the lemas.

Is there a better way to do this?
