You use Footnote component to inject some notes which are expanded upon later, i.e. footnotes:

HTML, the predominant markup language for web pages, has no mechanism for marking up notes.

Footnotes are marked in the text using the Footnote component. Then, they are displayed together where the next Footnotes component appears. This also means that you can have multiple footnote sections. In that case, the indexing of the notes will keep increasing, but each footnote will only appear as part of the next Footnotes section after it.

Multiple parts of the text can reference the same footnote. For that, the footnote must be given an id, and subsequent references to this footnote can only reference the id without providing additional content:

1linkSo this[Only one note](:Footnote (id=X)) and this[](:Footnote (id=X)) will reference the same thing.2link3link> :Footnotes

So thisOnly one note and this will reference the same thing.

If you want to have rich content as part of a footnote, you can use the quoted version of the Footnote component to outline your content, and then refer to it using an id:

1linkSo this[](:Footnote (id=Y)) will reference a note with more involved text.2link3link> :Footnote id=Y4link>5link> So in this note we can have stuff:6link> - Such as lists7link> - Or **styled** text8link> - Or any other markdown basically9link10link> :Footnotes

So this will reference a note with more involved text.

So in this note we can have stuff:

• Such as lists
• Or styled text
• Or any other markdown basically
