HTML Question

How do I create a link to a footnote in HTML?

For example:


This is main body of my content. I have a
footnote link for this line [1]. Then, I have some more
content. Some of it is interesting and it
has some footnotes as well [2].

[1] Here is my first footnote.

[2] Another footnote.


So, if I click on the "[1]" link it directs the web page to the first footnote reference and so on. How exactly do I accomplish this in HTML?

Answer Source

Give a container an id, then use # to refer to that Id.

e.g.

This is main body of my content. I have a footnote link for this line <a href="#footnote-1">[1]</a>. Then, I have some more content. Some of it is interesting and it has some footnotes as well <a href="#footnote-2">[2]</a>.

<p id="footnote-1">[1] Here is my first footnote.</p>
<p id="footnote-2">[2] Another footnote.</p>
