@footnote question

  • # December 3, 2012 at 11:54 am

    Hi guys, I have an issue with this @footernote. So, I understand that this is a page section like the @bottom-left, @top-right… only that this is in the “content box” of the page.
    But.. it doesn’t work at all.. I’ve write this:

    The html looks like this:

    Some name Some text

    All I want is “Some text” to be displayed on the bottom of the page it appears. The document has an arbitrary number of pages and this “footenote” may appear on any…
    Can somebody help me with this, please?
    I’ve tested all the examples from [here](http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-css3-gcpm-20070504/#footnotes “w3orgFootenotes”) with no success.
    I really hope you’ll have more experience then me at this. Thanks

    .ps. LE. hopefully it is readable now..

    That entire CSS looks like a bunch of made up gibberish to me. Is any of that supposed to work? How can you have `float: footnote;`?

    I think he’s found it from the W3C Working Draft – http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-gcpm/#turning-elements-into-footnotes

    Either way it’s a new one on me and I highly doubt theres any support yet.

    Yeap, TheDoc, found it there, I wrote that… I saw that it is a draft from nov. 2011. Really hoped it is working now… so it isn’t… very bad luck for me.
    Have a nice day, guys.
