Wow! Okay, that sure is a lot of footnotes! When I read the number 67, it just seemed unlikely that there would be that many at the bottoms of pages. Still, I would do them the way you're doing them.

Actually they ARE on the bottoms of the pages on which they occur. Yep.
Not notes or end notes. I didn't expect there to be 82 footnotes in
chapter 1. lol

I agree with Mayrie. I have scanned a few books with notes and that's
the
way I did them.

I don't think those are footnotes, by the way, but just notes, or
perhaps
endnotes. Footnotes appear at the bottoms of pages, and it's highly
unlikely
that there would be as many as 67 of them. <grin>

Glad to have such a conscientious person joining us.

Hi Devorah,

        You are doing exactly what I would do.  Just my two cents.
Thanks
for all of your help!  And everyone else's hard work too!  Can't have
anyone feeling as though volunteering goes unnoticed!

Peace,
Mayrie

Hi you all,
The last time I asked a question it was about bullets. Well, the book
I
had downloaded looked like it had a lot of bullets at first glance. It
is
from 1963. It's a classic, though, Stigma, by Erving Goffman and
although
the language is dated, he still has a lot of good stuff to say, so I
thought I would take a copy of the paperback out of the library and go

through the book carefully. Today the paperback arrived at my library.
I
brought it home. The bullets in the scanned book turned out to be
footnotes. Teeny tiny little numbers which scanned as bullets,
asterisks,
and other weird symbols.

It makes sense to me to just have footnote numbers the same size as
the
regular text, but I thought I should ask. I'm on Chapter 1 and already
up
to footnote 67. So for example here's a fragment. It's footnote 67 and
I
just have it in the middle of the text. Is this correct? There are a
gazillion footnotes and before I do any more I thought best to ask.
The
ellipses before and after are mine, stuck in to indicate it's a
fragment
out of context.

.teasing, ostracism, and fights.67 Interestingly, the more the child
is.

Thanks,
Devorah
