Example text[1]

Suppose you want to reference a book in an article, how do you go about doing that?

Well, first you start by entering the text you want, something like this:

This is the type of operation described by Harrison Schmitt, in "Return to the Moon"

Now you want to add a reference to the book mentioned in that sentence, so you enter something like this:

This is the type of operation described by Harrison Schmitt, in "Return to the Moon"<ref>'''Return to the Moon''' ''Exploration, Enterprise, and Energy in the Human Settlement of Space'' - Harrison Schmitt, Foreword by Neil Armstrong - 2005, ISBN 0-387-24285-6</ref>.

Somewhere on your page you add something like this:

===References===

<references/>

Now for the real thing

This is the type of operation described by Harrison Schmitt, in "Return to the Moon"[2].

References

  1. The headline on this page
  2. Return to the Moon Exploration, Enterprise, and Energy in the Human Settlement of Space - Harrison Schmitt, Foreword by Neil Armstrong - 2005, ISBN 0-387-24285-6

Also

By now, you've probably noticed that <ref></ref> can also be used in headlines just as I've done in the first headline on this page.
