Description

This element forms an IDREF link to a Footnote. It generates the same mark or link as the Footnote to which it points.

In technical documentation, FootnoteRef occurs most frequently in tables.

Processing expectations

The FootnoteRef element usually generates the same mark as the Footnote to which it points, although its mark can be influenced by the Label attribute.

Neither SGML nor XML provide a mechnism (at this time) for asserting that some IDREF links must point to specific classes of elements. If a FootnoteRef points to something other than a Footnote, the parser will not report it as an error. It is an error nonetheless. Processing is undefined.
