As discussed earlier in this chapter, explanatory notes are optional in the MLA
documentation style. They are used primarily to elaborate on points discussed in the body
of a research paper. The MLA style speciﬁ es that a superscript (raised number) be used for
a note reference mark to signal that an explanatory note exists either at the bottom of
the page as a footnote or at the end of the document as an endnote .
In Word, note text can be any length and format. Word automatically numbers
notes sequentially by placing a note reference mark in the body of the document and also
to the left of the note text. If you insert, rearrange, or remove notes, Word renumbers any
subsequent note reference marks according to their new sequence in the document.
