    I think I would choose "on the border" unless I had some really good reason to say "in the border". I'm inclined to believe that "on the border" should work for most occasions.

    PS It is quite common, however, to write or say "in the margin". This would generally cover those times when using "in the border" might be tempting.

    I would agree owlman5, the difficulty arises when you consider that it is written 'in the margins' of the paper. I would say that expression is far more common.
