Chapters Part Two
Notice on this page the footnote at the very end. Footnotes should be in superscript. If your word processor has a special function for inserting footnotes, I would advise against it. It can be very hard to undo certain kinds of formatting in word processors, and this is especially true of footnotes. Besides, an editor will want to see endnotes, not footnotes. It's much easier just to keep a separate file open for your endnotes, and you'll generally want to have endnotes separated according to chapter so that the first footnote for each chapter will be number 1. Your editor may very well use footnotes rather than endnotes for your published book, but it's endnotes he'll want to see in the manuscript you send him.
