A convention for gemtext footnotes

Given that some Gemini clients make links accessible via numbering - e.g. AV-98, and elpher with my proposed patches applied - i've decided to not use numbering for footnotes, and instead use lower-case letters[a]. i've personally found that gemtext pages which use numbering for footnotes can get a bit confusing in the presence of link numbering, although it's true i'm fairly easily confused in general. :-) So i've updated my previous gemlog posts accordingly.

[a] Like this, for example. As i'm writing in English, i figure the 26 letters of the English alphabet should be sufficient; i feel that, if i need more, i should probably be restructuring my writing.
