Footnotes in Markdown
Footnotes allow us to specify the notes or reference without affecting the document appearance. It is represented as a symbol in the form of a superscript followed by a number/word. When we specify a footnote, a superscript number as the reference link appears, which redirects the user to the bottom of the page.
To create a footnote in Markdown, add a number inside the square brackets followed by a caret symbol (^).
We can also specify the number/ words as an identifier, but it should not be a tab or space. Footnotes are represented with the text whose notes or references appear at the page's bottom. It does not affect the document's appearance and appears in a sequence. Footnotes commonly represent dictionary words and their meanings or any additional information other than the document.
