Thanks for the extra tugboat link! I hadn't realised that you can in fact specify not only width to a \vrule but also height and depth, thus I decided to go with \marginpar{\vrule width .6em height .5em depth .3em}

Woohoo! Thanks @barbarabeeton! You hit right on the issue :D The \vrule had no height. It is fixed now with \marginpar{\rule{0.6em}{0.7em}}. (Your solution with \marginpar{\vrule width 5pt\vphantom{()}} works too ;-) )

you mean like \marginpar{\vrule width 5pt\leavevmode}? Sadly the marginpar still does not appear :/

Yay, thanks, that's awesome \marginpar{\vrule width 5pt}. Only trouble is the marginpar is ignored unless I put something else in with the line. Any tip on an empty/invisible place holder I can use, to ensure the marginpar appears in the output?

Awesome answer! One question though, what do the comments, %&pdflatex and %pre do?

comment Why does no one fix eqnarray?
@StevenB.Segletes I have had the same thought myself. You joke, but in all the time I have wondered about this, this has seemed the only reason that made even a little sense. I mean latex wasn't always 30 years old, so surely at some point it was discovered by someone that eqnarray was broken, and someone decided it shouldn't be fixed.

comment Why does no one fix eqnarray?
A reason is, what a reason is, I guess.. however, I am still perplexed.. How can the fact that latex core is in such a poor state that it oughtn't be used without amsmath, be a justification for not fixing it? I should think it the contrary. Also, if people were fixing it with hacks like that, why wasn't it fixed then, once and for all? Surely the hacks just prove people knew about the problem and didn't fix it, or?

comment How to add a forced line break inside a table cell
\parbox will do the same, but you have set a width: \parbox[t]{5cm}{foo\\bar}
