So I figured that it would be a good idea to show the content of a footnote as soon as you indicate that you are interested in the footnote. Namely, when you move the cursor over the footnote symbol.2 This allows footnotes to work on devices that don’t support mouse hovering3, because you can still jump to a footnote via its link, but it removes the necessity of having to click on a footnote link for most people.
