I need help. There will be fic if you provide!  
So - does any body out there know how to do footnotes within an LJ entry? Particularly the nifty ones that take you from the thing you're footnoting, to the footnote, and then back? With the little links and suchwhat? And would you maybe want to tell me how to do it? Pleeeease? *bats eyes*

ok, here's your footnote number:

< a href="#footnote" >< sup > 1 < /sup >< /a >

Take out all those spaces.

THEN, down below:

< font size="-1" >< a name="footnote" >< /a > 1.

Again, kill the spaces.

Right, so top part goes in the text where you want your footnotes. I used "1" but you can use astrisks or whatever.

If you want to have multiple footnotes, then where it says "#footnote" make it say "#footnote_the_first" or something, and just make sure you match it with the same label down below.

Yay fic!

Hope this helps!!! *hugs*
