I can't for the life of me figure out how to view the epub version and I don't know if my footnote linking worked or not, so if someone with a smashwords account and the ability to view the epub version please go to https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/297017 and tell me if in the 2nd paragraph the link which is a subscripted "a" takes you to a footnote and the "b" next to the footnote takes you back to the 2nd paragraph and then please please please let me know if it works?

I know it works in the kindle version and i've spent the majority of my evening trying to figure this out so please help and tell me it worked. . . pretty please and thank you!

I looked at it in Adobe Digital Editions and it worked (both links). But, it's confusing. I would assume a would link to a footnote a) and I would never think to click on b) to go back up. But I'm not used to footnotes in ebooks.

Checked and it worked.

By the way, the links are superscript, not subscript.  Also, it's kind of weird that the a and b are in the table of contents on the left.

Can't you simply download Adobe Digital Editions?
I tried that and couldn't get anything to open in it. I also tried downloading the barnes and noble nook software for pc and coudln't get anything to work either. Not really sure what I was doing wrong.

Darn, I didn't think about it showing up in the table of contents...I wonder what I can do about that?

I know, it's the only way I could get it to work though, I tried for about an hour to get them both to be the same letter and or number but it wouldn't let me. Do you think it would be less confusing if one was "A" and the other "a"? Unless someone is really smart and knows how to make them both the same thing. . . ?

and thanks Swolf and Monique for trying it out for me!
