Links question

I have a flowing text layout that I will publish as a .mobi file. There are a few chapters and at the end of each are footnotes that link to the area in the chapter where the footnote is mentioned. That works fine except I need to know if there is a way to do the following.

When viewing the published book when you are looking at the footnotes you will see they are clearly linked. After you click on a footnote and you are now looking at the area of the page where the footnote is linked to is there a way to click that area and be able to link back to the footnote area as this to me would mean I would have to create another set of links and anchors and have to restyle each sentence or paragraph the footnote points to, correct?

You can do it with a single anchor at both ends:

Code:
<p>It's a siberian badger <a name="footnote_1_ref" href="#footnote_1">1</a>!</p>

...


<h2>Footnotes</h1>

<p><a name="footnote_1" href="#footnote_1_ref">1 Meles leucurus sibiricus</a></p>
Or you could put just the number in the return link if you'd prefer. Or you could split the return link out separately:

Code:
<p><a name="footnote_1">1</a> Meles leucurus sibiricus.  <a href="#footnote_1_ref">(back)</a></p>
It's entirely up to you.
