Template:Mid-text note

———————— ————————

Documentation icon Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


This template allows certain footnotes to be displayed arbitrarily throughout a transcluded text between the pages where it was originally placed. It allows the text to flow around it, rather than breaking a line, but will be copied at the point at which the template is added to the page.

It was designed for "Schmelzle's Journey to Flætz", as published in Tales by Musæus, Tieck, Richter, Volume 2, where footnotes not linked to the text were placed apparently arbitrarily at the bottom of most pages.

UsageEdit

The template is to be placed at the bottom of the page, immediately after the last word (not even separated by a space), but not in the footer (unless it is a subsequent part of a multi-page footnote: see below); it must be transcluded into the main space as well as being on the page.

Also, separate lines must be separated by a <br/> tag, rather than line breaks, which will break the text flow.

For notes which are contained at the end of a single page, use:

Example text at the end of the page{{mid-text note| Footnote text }} and more example text which will be transcluded in.

Which will display like this when transcluded into the main space:

Example text at the end of the page———————— Footnote text ———————— and more example text which will be transcluded in.

When a footnote is split over more than one page, however, use the following markup on the first page:

Example text at the end of the page{{mid-text note| Footnote text on the first page; | subsequent footnote text from the following pages }} and more example text which will be transcluded in.

Which will display like this when transcluded into the main space:

Example text at the end of the page———————— Footnote text on the first page; subsequent footnote text from the following pages ———————— and more example text which will be transcluded in.

On the subsequent pages put the template into the footer so that it isn't transcluded. Like this:

{{mid-text note| subsequent footnote text from the following pages }}

It will only display in the page space, but the text will be transcluded from its inclusion in the first page's template.
