Hi Jürgen,

it is a simple command definition:

\def\CNote#1#2{#1\cNote{#1] #2}}

Just in case it might not be clear, "\CNote{laboribus}{première note}"
would be the same as typing "laboribus\cNote{laboribus] première note}".

BTW, for humans "a" = "A". For a computer, "a" ≠ "A". So "\CNote" is a
different command from "\cNote". For a basic sample is fine, but for
real documents creating commands that are too similar for humans is the
best way to make mistakes.

My apologies if the explanations are obvious to you.

I hope this might help,

Pablo
