Default EPub with popup boxes?

Can this be done in PPx7 ? I want to create an EPub, and at the end of each chapter, a series of footnotes that are linked to keywords in the main text, so when you click on a linked word, the footnote appears in a popup box on top of the link word!

I know that is how it is done, but I do not know how to link the word to the correct footnote?

Is this a PDF EPub or a *.mobi?

Maybe later, in Epub3 — Popup Footnotes.

Footnotes in PPX7 are pretty limited. They appear on a separate page with a link back to the reference.

Bhikkhu Pesala, is it possible to create a separate page with multiple links to different references, or is it only one link one reference per page?

I have very little experience with creating E-books. I passed on my copy of PPX6 to someone else and asked him to do it for me.

The attached shows how the only two notes in my attempt appear together, with back links to the references in the text.

You can do these pop-up references in Jutoh 2.x.

As far as I know the only reader that honors the pop-up for ePub3 is iBooks.

My thanks to both of you. I do know that the method you have demonstrated Bhikkhu Pesala works, because I have seen it in operation many times. I will give it my best shot in PPx7. Thank you Mike, I will try that program if I cannot get satisfactory results in PPx7.
