The footnote, once considered the treasure of a special artistic talent—the inscription on the pedestal of a monument—has sunk in reputation to a bauble dropped to the bottom of a scholar's page or tossed onto a heap at the back of a book. And yet a note, whether an expository addendum to a text, an annotation, or a reference, exhibits an intriguingly complex set of possible relationships with the text to which it refers. When the work in question is Ulysses and the medium is digital, a rethinking of the entire question of notes and annotations becomes possible, even necessary.
