Re: Remixed text footnotes/references keep old numbering system #remix #referencing

Thanks for pointing this out. When students transfer material numbering of references, figure numbers, and similar often end up being hard coded in as in this text. In your edited page you can simply change "28" to "1" so it doesn't look so strange.

I remixed a text using books from OpenStax and a couple of other books. I forked it for editing. I have superscripts that refer to references, and those reference links were retained but with the old numbering system. It's not a problem for now, but is something that eventually needs attention.
