Jargon Guides

An in-line footnote is a style of displaying the text of a footnote wrapped in a [Footnote: ] tag in the location where the footnote is referenced in the text body of an e-book. For example,

This footnote [Footnote: Sample footnote text] is in-line.

This style is no longer used at DP during proofreading/formatting, but it may still be found in some old e-books at Project Gutenberg.

Compare to out-of-line footnotes, which is the footnote style currently required by the Guidelines.
