Todo notes in Latex as a package

The package has been updated, find the new version at http://midtiby.blogspot.com/2008/07/todonotes-version-2008-07-28.html.

I have transformed the previously described script into a latex package (pheww, this is my first package, so there may exists some rough edges ...). The source for the package is given below.

The package currently takes three arguments
* disable = [true, false] if false the package will only define empty commands, so no output from the embedded todo commands are generated, but you document will compile
* color = [color values accepted by pgf] Defines the background color of the todonotes and the line connecting the todo note with the place it was inserted in the test.
* bordercolor = [color values accepted by pgf] Defines the border color of the todonotes.

I use the following line to import the package to a document.
\usepackage[disable=false,color=orange!80,bordercolor=black]{todonotes}

I hope that someone will find this usefull.

Henrik

This whole information is absolutely interesting. i like this blog because is easily understandable, and that is invaluable to the readers. Beyond all doubt La Tex will be very useful for everybody who want to prove it.
