Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Footnotes and endnotes, part of Creating EPUBs from a Word Document.
So, where do footnotes go?…Well, they're normally found at the bottom…of a printed page, but of course,…we're dealing with an EPUB…and there's no concept of a page as such.…So, although it's true there are…some very clever people who've…reportedly managed to hack around this…to some degree using CSS,…essentially there is no place for footnotes in EPUBs.…Endnotes, however, can be added…and they can be added at the end of a chapter…or the end of a publication and of course…in an electronic text the actual distance…is of no consequence because they should…only be a tap away.…
I'm also using the Mac just at the moment,…although I will be switching to Windows…in just a moment or two because this process…is just another one of those things that is…slightly different there.…So I'm gonna select this unfamiliar term…just here Sirrah, just there like so, and I want to add…an endnote for that.…So to do so I'm gonna go out to the insert menu…and I'm going to come down to footnote just there…and this panel opens.…There's a radio choice at the top here.…
