Which one is better for you will come down to your personal preferences. Video: GoodNotes 5 Walkthrough. A beautiful and easy to use editor for the popular Markdown markup language, combined with a themed live preview feature, you will never have to write bor.

This page demonstrates the syntax for footnotes used in my extension to PHP-Markdown. To see the unprocessed version, visit index.text in thisdirectory.

Footnotes[^1] are added in-text like so:

And with a matching footnote definition at the end of the document:

Note the caret/circumflex/hat ('^'). As with reference-style links, the line-break after the colon is optional.

Footnote Contents

As with list items, any subsequent paragraphs inside a note should be indented[^2].

Slender: the arrival for mac. Footnote definitions can, like reference-style links, be added in the middleof a document. There is no requirement that they stay at the end.

Footnotes can contain any markup [^3], either Markdown or HTML, includingother footnote references. They cannot contain link or footnote definitions.

Inline Footnotes

For consistency with links, footnotes can be added inline ^4:

Inline notes will work even without the identifier:



As with links, it's up to you to keep the link identifiers unique. However,footnotes are auto-numbered, so you can use note names like [^bob] or [^apple][^apple] and still end up with a nice ordered list of numbers.[^numbers]

Footnotes are the mind killer.
Footnotes are the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my footnotes.

[^2]: This is the first paragraph.

is indented, but it isn't required. Thefirst line is enough.

[^3]: This is a pointless example footnote containing a raw HTML table.

[^numbers]: Since the numbering is done at run time, this will break link permanence if the document is edited. I don't consider that enough of a problem to worry about, but it's worth keeping in mind.
