Description brian r hunter 2008-03-23 11:26:19 UTC
The page has citations that do not generate to a valid note.
e.g. link [5] in the section titled 'Birth' is generated as
instead of the correct note

This is made obvious as #cite_note-2 does not exist (this note has a reference name)

if the same page is viewed from the 'history' page 
the citation links are generated correctly

The generated html source code is
by which he enlivened Adam.<sup id="cite_ref-2" class="reference"><a href="#cite_note-2" title="">[5]</a></sup>

instead of the correct code
by which he enlivened Adam.<sup id="cite_ref-4" class="reference"><a href="#cite_note-4" title="">[5]</a></sup>

The page is quite complex but I cannot see any wiki mistakes.

The fact that it can be rendered correctly via a different link indicates a bug in the cgi code
