## Footnotes

Place a footnote at the bottom of the current page, as here.

```Noël Coward quipped that having to read a footnote is like having
to go downstairs to answer the door, while in the midst of making
love.\footnote{%
I wouldn't know, I don't read footnotes.}
```

You can put multiple footnotes on a page. If the footnote text becomes too long then it will flow to the next page.

You can also produce footnotes by combining the `\footnotemark` and the `\footnotetext` commands, which is useful in special circumstances.

To make bibliographic references come out as footnotes you need to include a bibliographic style with that behavior (see Using BibTeX).
