Footnote Syntax

A footnote is notes, clarifications, and links to sources placed at the bottom of the page. 1)

Wiki Markup Syntax:
A footnote is notes, clarifications, and links to sources placed at the bottom of the page. ((This is a footnote.))

You can give a footnote a name2) and address her by name3).

Wiki Markup Syntax:
You can give a footnote a name((name>This is a named footnote.))
and address her by name((name)).

Footnote name4) can be placed before its transcript5).

Wiki Markup Syntax:
Footnote name((name2)) can be placed before
its transcript((name2>This is another named footnote.)).

Created footnotes are automatically displayed at the end of the page, but they can be forced to appear anywhere on the page using the ~~REFNOTES~~ tag

There are times when you need to display some footnotes separately; for this, conditional namespaces for footnotes are used. For example, display footnotes separately after the table.

Table
Text1) Text 22)
Text 33) Text 46)
1) Footnote to the text
2) Footnote to the text 2
3) Footnote to the text 3
Wiki Markup Syntax:
^  Table  ^^
|Text((table:note>Footnote to the text))  |Text 2((table:note2))  |
|Text 3((table:text))  |Text 4((text2))  |

((table:note2>Footnote to the text 2))
((table:text>Footnote to the text 3))
((text2>Footnote to the text 4 will appear at the end of the page because it is not in the ''table:'' space))

~~REFNOTES table:~~

As you can see, decoding footnotes in the namespace can also be done anywhere on the page, but before the tag for their display, in the form:

Wiki Markup Syntax:
~~REFNOTES footnote_namespace:~~

ESL.Wiki pages can use pre-configured namespaces that have their own different design, for example:


*] Footnote for in-page output.
1) This is a note.
1] Link or citation.
Wiki Markup Syntax:
  * ''stars:''((stars:>Footnote for in-page output.))
  * ''note:''((note:note1>This is a note.))
  * ''cite:''((cite:do>Link or citation.))

~~REFNOTES stars: ~~
~~REFNOTES note: ~~
~~REFNOTES cite: ~~

And these ↓ are footnotes that have not yet been displayed, which are displayed automatically at the end of the page:


1) This is a footnote.
2), 3) This is a named footnote.
4), 5) This is another named footnote.
6) Footnote to the text 4 will appear at the end of the page because it is not in the table: space.
