Book Designer and linked footnotes

I usually use Book Designer's Notes and Links to link footnotes.
However, these are one-way links.
So I thought that I'd experiment by putting some two-way links into the source html, and had some odd results when making an LRF book.

I used this in the body of the text:
Quote:
<a href="#fn1" id="fn1marker">[1]</a>
and this for the endnotes:
Quote:
<a href="#fn1marker" id="fn1">1.</a> Note text
The results were:
1. My LIT format book had perfect two-way links.
2. I put the html0 file into Mobipocket Creator and made a PRC book with perfect two-way links.
3. But the links in the LRF book only worked one way - clicking on the link returned to the text, but not vice versa.

In the end I remade the LRF using BD Notes and Links.
(The book, incidentally, was Margaret Oliphant's Jeanne D'Arc, now uploaded.)

I would like to have two-way links, for the benefit of LIT and PRC book readers. But I'm not prepared to make two separate sets of links - it would just take too long.
Can anyone tell me where I'm going wrong?

I don't think there is anything wrong; it's just that perhaps it's a bit too complicated for the LRF generating routine.

When I create .imp ebooks from html code using eBook Publisher, I must separate those two HTML tags before the links work properly.

Try replacing that html code with, for the body text:
Code:
<a id="fn1marker"></a><a href="#fn1">[1]</a>
and this for the endnotes:
Code:
<a id="fn1"></a><a href="#fn1marker">1.</a>
or in older depreciated html code just:
Code:
<a name="fn1marker"><a href="#fn1">[1]</a>
and this for the endnotes:
Code:
<a name="fn1"><a href="#fn1marker">1.</a>
See if this works for you.
