Internet Explorer is not supported by Design Library

The last version of Internet Explorer, version 11, was released on October 17, 2013. This is a very long time ago when taking into account the rapid development of web technologies. These days it is often difficult and time consuming to get modern technologies to work well in this old browser. More and more frameworks are dropping support, and even Microsoft themselves has announced that they will fully drop support for IE in their own services in 2021.

Consequently, we have decided to not include support for IE in the Design Library website.

Luckily, there are modern options in active development. Please use Firefox, Edge or Chrome instead.

Footnote

A note of reference, explanation, or comment usually placed below the text.

Guidelines

Short description

Footnote can be used when you have additional information (a note) to the main text. A note character (such as a number or an asterisk) is added to the text. The note is then repeated below the main text, followed by the additional information (note text).

 

When and how to use it

Footnotes can be used for source references, explanations or translations, but also to other notes and parenthetical posts, which are not so essential that the reader cannot depart from them without missing important information.

 

Do's and don'ts

  • Don't overuse footnotes as they may interfere with reading and divert attention from the main message of the text.
Specification

Specification

The footnote character has smaller font and is superscripted.
