8.2.51 @fn-type Type of Footnote

Type of information conveyed in the footnote (for example, financial disclosure).

There are many reasons why the text or metadata of a standard might be footnoted. Where those reasons are known, this attribute can preserve that information. This could be a means of preserving, for example, that a member of the original Working Group or Committee is now deceased.

Since the use of @fn-type in standards documents is currently uncommon, there is no list of suggested values, and standards organizations are use any value for this attribute.

In element <fn>, this attribute may be used if the element is used.
