 Dear all,

I have two questions regarding using spacing in enumerations. Depending on
a mode being enabled, I would like to add a command at the beginning of
an enumeration (I want to place something in the margin, but it doesn't
actually matter what I do, only when).
As shown in the minimal example below, invoking the macro that does
something, a little extra space is added.
I don't know why, it is probably something very TeX-basic I am ignorant
of. So: How do I get rid of the extra space?
The problem occurs both in mk2 and mk4, I would prefer a solution that
also works in mk2.

Thanks!

Matthias

\def\mma
{\startmode[mma]% not sure here

or maybe

\def\mma{\doifmode{mma}{....}}

or perhaps

\def\mma{}%default

% override the definition in a mode
\startmode[mma]
\def\mma{in mode mma}
\stopmode


or use setups
