3.2.6 Footnotes and Annotations

There are a number of requests to save text for later printing.

Footnotes are printed at the bottom of the current page.

Delayed text is very similar to a footnote except that it is printed when called for explicitly. This allows a list of references to appear (for example) at the end of each chapter, as is the convention in some disciplines.

Most macro packages which supply this functionality also supply a means of automatically numbering either type of annotation.
