Footnotes! The Traveling Tutor and the Librarian has a new look · 4:13am Feb 16th, 2019

I have *just* finished up re-editing and re-posting all thirty-seven chapters of The Traveling Tutor and the Librarian, making all the headers line up right, adding proper⁽*⁾ footnotes, and taking out all my Google+ pictures by turning them into TinyPic.com links (because Google+ is going away next month). If you haven't read it before, I'd encourage you to take a trip through it over the next few days, and if you have read it, feel free to return for another trip. And if you're still not convinced, I'll hit you with a pillow.

Time for a reread!!

Great, now I have to reread one of my favorites. Damn you!

Using the superscript typeface? I figured you were redoing them using the built-in footnotes1.

  1. Done with {footnote]This is a footnote.{/footnote}, only with []'s.

Oh, good. I much prefer the in-line footnotes on web-based stuff. Having to page down to the end and back is hugely frustrating.

I have the same problem with end notes in a print book. Flicking the eye to the bottom of the page is much less disruptive than having to go to the end of the chapter (or even the end of the book - my one complaint with the Yu translation of Journey to the West, where you have to do this with four books.

On the other hand there is the little trick with notes and mouseovers. Quite hard doing that in print...

An excuse to re-read!

5014375 I would have, *except* if Knightly changes the footnote format, that would mean I have to go dig through all 37 chapters *again* to fix stuff.
5014439 And an excuse to fix typos, of which I just fixed six in a row. sigh.
5014350 5014346 I'm so evil :)
