Footnotes and Cross-References Sometimes, in INFO documentation, you will see a footnote-pointer. A footnote pointer performs a similar function to a menu subtopic, except that menus are used to describe the fundamental structure of the documentation, while footnotes are used for cross-references. Footnote pointers look like this: *Note ftnt: Help-Ft. This is a real, live footnote pointer which is named "Ftnt" and points at the node named "Help-Ft". You can use the footnote to go to node "Help-Ft" by issuing the "F" command. It takes an argument, like "M", and you should give the footnote name, in this case "Ftnt". As with "M", you can use "?" to get a list of the things you are allowed to use as arguments - the names of all the footnotes in the current node. >> Type "F" and "?" to see how that looks, then type "Ftnt" and CR to go to the node of the footnote. Read it and come back with "L", then move on with "N".
