I don't know how far you can take it, but I've footnoted a footnote within a footnote before. Makes the numbers in the text jump around a bit, thoughsmiley - winkeye

I've recently removed a footnote within a footnote, I found it too confusing (and as you can see by the first post here, it *is* confusing)and unnecessary. Just my smiley - 2cents

I wouldn't do it myself, even now I know about it. If I find one in an Entry I'm subbing I agree with B'Elana, I'll remove it to avoid confusion.

Hi Annie,

I couldn't recall inserting that footnote either, so it must have been in there before I got it. smiley - tongueout I've now put footnote 2 in brackets and slightly rephrased footnote 1 to get it less complicated. Hope it's better now. smiley - smiley
