This is an example of multiple references to the same footnote.[1]

Such references are particularly useful when citing sources, if different statements come from the same source.[1]

A concise way to make multiple references is to use empty ref tags, which have a slash at the end. Although this may reduce redundant work, please be aware that if a future editor removes the first reference, this will result in the loss of all references using the empty ref tags.[1]


  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Remember that when you refer to the same footnote multiple times, the text from the first reference is used. Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; name "multiple" defined multiple times with different content
