Footnote (footnote / footnote-continued / endnote)

Footnotes appear in the lower part of the type area (sometimes also outside it). Usually they form the last printed passage on the page. Only sheet signatures are commonly listed below. Footnotes are often counted (till the 18th century with (small) letters, later on with numbers), but may also appear uncounted; they usually end with a period. Sometimes separators introduce the footnote area. Footnotes always refer to citations from the page in question and must be distinguished from endnotes which refer to entire sections. A footnote can include one or more paragraphs. Paragraphs should also be entered as such.

Long footnote texts can extend over several pages. In this case, these footnotes shall be marked as continuous footnotes.
