1. I did not author the example that I posted, just lifted it from a book that I can currently reading.
2. I hardly ever follow thru to read footnotes. as I use a sony touch screen PRS650 it requires using the stylus to accurately tap tha footnote number & the info thus found is usually just a book title. I'd prefer to have the foot note info embedded into the flow of main text, but in a smaller typeface.
3. I'd never thought of using back button to return, for a touch screen device, although the Sony does also have buttons... hmm - doesn't worjk, for this book anyway, the sony back button ( which is same as swipe for previous page) just steps back 1 screen in the footnotes list. the only way back is to tap the hyperlinked number with the stylus, & to carefully only single tap it, otherwise you get into dictionary lookup.
