Description User:32X 2007-12-19 21:41:44 UTC
Normally references are declared within the text (<ref>bla</ref>), which makes the source harder readable. If a reference is used more than once, it could be combined by (<ref name="bla">bla</ref> and <ref name="bla"/>). The problem is, the defining instance may still mess the text when viewed its wiki source.

Please add a parameter or other function to make it possible, that a reference can be defined (at the end of the text) without adding this defining instance to the reference table:

| bla bla bla <ref name="bla"/> bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
| bla bla bla bla bla bla 
| ...
| <ref defname="bla">This defining instance won't show up in the <references/> table.</ref>

Additionally dirty hacks like wouldn't be needed any more. (It works, the first instance isn't shown, but the "a" appears in the list of <references/>.)
