Simplifying a Complex Document with Cross-References

Navigating a complex document can be made much easier with cross-references. References to other pages, figures, tables, and definitions show a reader how fragments of information are linked together. (You may have noticed that this book is liberally sprinkled with cross-references to guide you to other parts of the book that discuss related or complementary features.)

A cross-reference can point to a page, chapter, or volume number; a footnote or endnote number; a paragraph/outline number; a caption number; a counter; or any combination of these. It can be as simple as “see ‘Contract Terms’ on page 35,” or as complex as “refer to footnote 5 on page 78 in chapter 13.”
