$footnote-numeration — How are footnotes numbered?

Parameter:
{}footnote-numeration
Defined in:
param.xsl
Used in:
parameter-maps.xsl, modules/footnotes.xsl, modules/chunk-cleanup.xsl

Synopsis

$footnote-numeration := ('1')

Description

There are different styles of footnote numeration. This parameter contains a list of the symbols that should be used. If there could be more footnotes than symbols in the list, the last symbol in the list must be a character suitable for formatting numbers.

For example, if the sequence in $footnote-numeration is “*”, “†”, “a”, then the first footnote will be marked with “*”, the second with “”, the third with “a”, the forth with “b”, and so on.

When chunking, footnotes may be renumbered within each chunk (see $chunk-renumber-footnotes).
