Ancillary information, such as a citation or commentary, that provides additional context to a referenced passage of text.


Example 1 — Footnote
<aside role="doc-footnote">
   <p>1. …</p>

Relation to ARIA

doc-footnote inherits its semantics from the a section role (i.e., it represents a container of related content, but is not a landmark).


doc-footnote is typically used on aside elements.

For a simplified list of all the elements the role is allowed on, refer to the mapping table in the EPUB Type to ARIA Role Authoring Guide. For the official list of allowed elements, refer to ARIA in HTML.
