We are intending to convert to EAD several traditional, printed
catalogues of archives and manuscripts. These contain numerous
scholarly footnotes. Presumably these should be encoded as <note>.
But to avoid cluttering up the text of the online finding aids with
footnotes, we would like to create links from the footnote placers,
so that the footnote text only appears in the browser when the user
clicks on the placer. Could anyone please advise how this might be

Many thanks in anticipation.
