// so the marker seen in the body text will be auto-numbered at "1", and the footnote will appear at the bottom of the page
builder.Write("This text will be referenced by a footnote.");
builder.InsertFootnote(FootnoteType.Footnote, "Footnote comment regarding referenced text.");

// Insert more text and mark it with an endnote with a custom reference mark,
// which will be used in place of the number "2" and will set "IsAuto" to false
builder.Write("This text will be referenced by an endnote.");
builder.InsertFootnote(FootnoteType.Endnote, "Endnote comment regarding referenced text.", "CustomMark");

// Footnotes always appear at the bottom of the page of their referenced text, so this page break will not affect the footnote
// On the other hand, endnotes are always at the end of the document, so this page break will push the endnote down to the next page
