<aside> is appropriate if the side note "could be considered separate from the content"
From a programmer's perspective:
- It shouldn't be in an <aside>, if it is actually directly about what is in <main>
- An <aside> should be able to be evaluated on its own, (almost entirely) in isolation from, and not dependent on anything in, the <main> content. This could be especially important/relevant for screen readers.
<aside> is not appropriate if the side note is "a parenthetical". The W3C gives no examples of what it means.
- HTML: <aside>
