Citing makes it possible to add footnotes to a page. The footnotes can be a textual cite to source material, or an Internet link to a webpage with the source material.
The basic concept of the
<ref> tag is that it inserts the text enclosed by the ref tags as a footnote in a designated section, which you indicate with the placeholder tag
The citations appear as small, numbered footnotes like this. They are generally added either directly following the fact that they support, or at the end of the sentence that they support, following any punctuation. When clicked, they take the reader to a citation in a reference section near the bottom of the article.
A citation is inserted into a page following this pattern:
<ref>...</ref>. Note the difference between the opening and closing reference tags.
Additional placeholder tags
<references /> can be inserted in the text, and all
<ref> tags up to that point, in that group, will be inserted there.
