Citation, Documentation of Sources

Q. How does one cite a footnote on a page that is numbered with roman numerals? For example, a reference to a footnote 1 on page xxii, adapting the example citation in CMOS 14.147, would look rather clunky this way: Jerome Kagan, “Introduction to the Tenth-Anniversary Edition,” in The Nature of the Child (New York: Basic Books, 1994), xxiin1.

A. We’d advise adding a space between page number and note number: xxii n1. To ensure the expression stays together on one line, make it a nonbreaking space (as we’ve done here; see CMOS 6.121).
