Text that appears at the bottom of a page that adds explanation. It is often used to give credit to the source of information. When accumulated and printed at the end of a document, they are called "endnotes."

Footnotes are printed in a smaller type size and are preceded by a sign (a number or asterisk) corresponding to the sign following the statement in the main text that is being elucidated. Footnotes are numbered continuously or by chapter or section.
