{{efn}} is used, together with {{notelist}}, to create explanatory notes.

Usage

{{efn|Footnote text}}

{{efn|name=footnote name|Footnote text}}

|name= Sets a standard reference name per WP:NAMEDREFS.

{{efn|group=footnote group|Footnote text}}

|group= Sets the group name. This defaults to lower-alpha.

The available options are:

group Styled as
note [note 1]
upper-alpha [A]
upper-roman [IV]
lower-alpha [a]
lower-greek [α][β]
lower-roman [iv]

Remember that "=" cannot appear in an unnamed template parameter and "|" cannot appear in any template parameter. For "|", {{!}} can be used. For "=", {{=}} can be used or the parameter can be named 1= explicitly:

{{efn|1=Converting at a rate of Kr 20 = £1.}}
