Is there any way to do cross-references to notes?  I mean, suppose I say something about Emile Durkheim[1] and want to include that little bracketed number to cross-reference to a footnote in the same post, how do I do this?  I've been just using superscripted numbers (a little trick I learned from Fang Langford) and putting the notes at the bottom.  But it would be nice if you could click on the note number and go to the note.  I know you can do this in HTML somehow, but I don't know if it works in posts and I don't know how to do it either.

Just since I seem to be writing some very long, reference-heavy posts....

Thanks!

There doesn't seem to be one in BBCode, but I did a quick Google on HTML footnotes and found this page. It's a little dense, but I think you can find what you need...I think.

Here's the HTML code visible as you would type it in.  One for the reference
Code:
< a href="#note1" > [1]< /a >


And one for the note itself
Code:
< a name="#note1" > [1] < /a >


Here you can try it out. [1]

I believe you can also create a return loop with a bit of extra code, something like this:
Code:
< a href="#note2" > [2]< /a >< a name="place2" ></a>


And for the note itself
Code:
< a name="note2" > [2] < /a > Explanatory text. < a href="#place2" >Return to Text< /a >


That should give you:
[2]
Other text
[2] Here's the explanation.  Return to Text.

(I hope this works.)

Yes, that definitely does work, but out of curiousity, where do you post topics long enough that need footnotes?  That would be rather long... :)

Yes, well, take a look at some of my posts!  In particular, see the RPG Theory thread "Not Lectures on Theory."  You'll see why I asked.
