5 Footnotes🔗

 (require scriblib/footnote) package: scribble-lib

procedure

(note pre-content ...)  element?

  pre-content : pre-content?
Creates a margin note for HTML and a footnote for Latex/PDF output.

syntax

(define-footnote footnote-id footnote-part-id)

Binds footnote-id to a form like note that registers a footnote. Binds footnote-part-id to a function that generates a section to display the registered footnotes. (The section generated by footnote-part-id will not show a title or appear in a table of contents; it will look like a footnote area.)

Beware that any content passed to footnote-id will occur twice in at least an intermediate form of the document, and perhaps also in the rendered form of the document. Consequently, the content passed to footnote-id should not bind link targets or include other one-time declarations.

Example:
#lang scribble/manual
@require[scriblib/footnote]
 
@define-footnote[my-note make-my-note]
 
@title{Months of the Year}
 
@section{January}
January has 31 days.
 
@section{February}
February has 28 days in common years.@my-note{In leap years,
February has 29 days.}
 
@make-my-note[]
 
@section{March}
March has 30 days.
