Create a footnote/endnote entry


Notemarks are used for marking a sentence to be pulled out of the normal flow and moved to a footnote or endnote area.


There are three components to a notemark:

  1. The notemark delimiters, which consist of two asterisks ** placed at the start and end.
  2. The coalescer, which is an arbitrary name preceded by a fullstop .
  3. The note itself, as one or more full sentences, all on the same line.
 **.coalescer The note itself.**
The three components of a notemark


The notemark delimiters mark the start and end of the expression.

The coalescer is used by the notes builder to assemble the footnotes into meaningful groups, such as placing them at the end of chapters or articles. It may be omitted.

The note itself may be of any length, as long as it it typed into the manuscript on a single line. It may contain term-marks for emphasis or inflection, but it may not use container phrasing (so lists and tables are not permitted).


Here is what notemarks look like within the body of a manuscript.
