Footnotes/ReferencesTemplate:Anchor
Numbering is generated automatically.
To create a footnote or reference, use this format:

Article text.<ref name="test">[http://www.example.org Link text], additional text.</ref>

Article text.<ref name="test">Link text, additional text.</ref>
To reuse the same note, reuse the name with a trailing slash:

Article text.<ref name="test" />

To display notes, add either of these lines to the References section:
