@subsection{Notes}

A @deftech{note} is a comment or addendum to an @tech{article} using the @racket[note] tag. It may
be written by the same person who wrote the article, or submitted by a reader.




A note appears at the bottom of the article to which it is attached, but it also appears in the blog
and in the RSS feed as a separate piece of content, and is given the same visual weight as actual
articles.

A note may optionally have a @deftech{disposition} which reflects a change in attitude towards its
parent article. A disposition consists of a @italic{disposition mark} such as an asterisk or dagger,
and a past-tense verb. For example, an author may revisit an opinion piece written years earlier and
add a note describing how their opinion has changed; the tag for this note might include
@racket[#:disposition "* recanted"] as an attribute. This would cause the @tt{*} to be added to the
article’s title, and the phrase “Now considered recanted” to be added to the margin, with a link to

A @deftech{note} is a comment or addendum to an @tech{article} using the @racket[note] tag. It may

As shown above, a note appears at the bottom of the article to which it is attached, but it also
appears in the blog and in the RSS feed as a separate piece of content, and is given the same visual
weight as actual articles.

A note may optionally have a @deftech{disposition} which reflects a change in attitude towards its

print and web output, and @tt{C)} organize an ever-growing collection of hundreds of individual
notes and articles without noticable loss of speed. 

@(define-runtime-path source-diagram "source-diagram.png")
@centered{@responsive-retina-image[source-diagram]}

The solid-line connections indicate explicit @racket[require] relationships. Dotted arrows generally
indicate implicit exports in the Pollen environment: docs and metas to templates,
@seclink["pollen-rkt"]{@filepath{pollen.rkt}} to source documents and templates. The orange lines
highlight the provision and use of the functions in
@seclink["crystalize-rkt"]{@filepath{crystalize.rkt}}.

Individual articles, while they are being rendered to HTML pages, save copies of their metadata and
HTML to the SQLite cache. This is done by calling @racket[parse-and-cache-article!] from within
their template. Likewise, series pages cache themselves with a call to @racket[cache-series!] from
within their template.

The modules are arranged vertically: those on the upper rows provide bindings which are used by
those on the lower rows. The bottom row are the @tt{.poly.pm} files that make up @tech{articles} and
@tech{series}.
