I still maintain, I'm afraid, that this is a shortcoming in the reading device, and that it's not necessary for the creator of a book to provide 2-way links. Of course, it's nice if they do so, but it's certainly not (IMHO) mandatory.
I was thinking that might be the case. That is a good reason to place footnotes in the following paragraph and reduce the font size for the paragraph so people who don't want to read them can easily recognize and skip over them. It all depends on the target audience. ADE on a pc doesn't have a back button that I can find.
