Inline notes [238]


Encoding of inline notes, using <note rend="place(inline)">


Inline notes are encoded where they appear in the text. In most cases, they do not have an anchoring element. (In effect, the note serves as its own anchor.) Very rarely, a note may function like a footnote (by referring to a passage of text further up on the page) while being placed within the flow of text, rather than at the foot of the page. For instance, a note on a line of poetry might appear at the end of a poem. In such a case, the note would be encoded as an inline note, but would point to its anchor point just as an endnote or footnote does. Inline notes that have no anchoring element carry neither an id= nor a target= attribute.

The rend= attribute for all inline notes should include “place(inline)”. The value for the anchored= attribute should be “no” (again, except in those rare cases where the inline note points to an anchor point higher up on the page).
