Elizabeth, In the print books the footnotes *are* superscript. What I was doing when validating and finding that they were not was making them such. Then the question arose here are one point and at least some members said not to make them superscript but to put the numbers next to the periods without parentheses (I was going to do that) because that way they would be easier to read. However bookshare wants them I'm happy to do them, but changing the way they are in the print book is no different to my mind than deleting hyphens at the end of sentences and closing up the word. smile Or putting photos and illustrations and their captions in places that will not interrupt a sentence or paragraph. smile Cindy ____________________________________________________________________________________ Check out the hottest 2008 models today at Yahoo!
