Adding/Testing Footnotes

I have wanted to add some sort of footnote ability to the site. I really like the style that Randyll Munroe uses on his what if? site. It is rather simple, however, the other good looking one, in my opinion is that used by the Stratechery website.

The standard versions really don’t look too great.

Well… these all look a bit lame don’t they.

I seem to have found something much better. I may have had a look at the source for the Stratechery website and seen that their element is called a bigfootnote. A little bit of Googling later and I find this.

This is what the new version looks like 1.

This now places the footnote right where you need it, it is also placed at the bottom of the document.

  1. What do you think?
