Circled Text

When putting circled edit comments or directions in the margins, does it matter which margin? On p. 23 in the text (regarding moving text to a different page), it is specific about which margin to place the directions, but I don't see any other references (for example with italicize, underline, or other clarifications that are placed in the margins).

Your editorial queries, instructions to the typesetter, and so forth should appear in the margin that is closer to the text you are talking about. For example, if you are asking about the first word of a line, you would put your query in the lefthand margin; if you are asking about the last word, you would put it in the righthand margin.
