An out-of-line footnote is a style of handling footnotes where the text of the footnote remains at the end of the page, with only a reference of the form "[X]" shown in the text body. For example,

This marker[1] references an out-of-line footnote.

(See it down there at the bottom of this article.)

This is the footnote style used for proofreading and formatting projects under the current Guidelines.

Compare to in-line footnotes, which are no longer used in DP projects.
