From Pittsburgh Streets
The {{note}} template creates a footnote within the text of an article. An article that uses footnotes should have a "Notes" section, after the article text but before the "References" section, whose only content is the {{notes}} template.

Footnotes can use {{r}} to cite sources.

The set of symbols used for the footnote superscripts is defined in MediaWiki:Cite link label group-note. But this does not apply to the list items in the "Notes" section, which have to be styled with CSS.
