Footnotes questions

jgmiller's picture

1) In a book I am currently editing I have footnotes that "spill" over to a second page. Do I add ALL of the footnote text to the first appearance of the [^x]: tag? Or, do I duplicate the [^x]: tag on the next page like the page scan shows?

2) In a footnote that I'm currently editing a paragraph break takes place. But, the indent does not automatically occur. I have to add multiple   tags to the beginning of the paragraph to create this effect. Is this the correct approach?

Once again, because of the one chapter becomes one page factor, I would suggest you treat footnotes as single entities.

Numerous styles occur in making online documents here at CCEL. Some are very complicated, while some are fairly simple. I would suggest that whatever works for you on the paragraph breaks and gets the right appearance is the way to go.
