MHRA Footnote Template Coding - Guide to Using the Special Characters

Sorry to disturb,

I’m a new EndNote 9.1 user. I’m happy to edit the footnote and biblio templates to present my footnote citations according to the MHRA style guide. But I need to be able to code these templates properly and efficiently - it’s very slow work making changes and then updating my document to see if the citations present correctly… 

I would find a guide to the special characters (like the vertical bar, bullet and degree character etc) really helpful, particularly if it has examples of citations…i.e. 

Journal Article:

Author, Title, Journal, Volume, Issue, Page Range, cited pages

Author, is coded: Author,. (the word Author picks up the author reference field content and the comma is presented. The bullet presents a space)

Title, is coded: ‘Title’,. (the word Title picks up the title reference field content and the comma and single quotation marks are presented. The bullet presents a space.      


I have the 2014 ‘Modifying Reference Types and Output Styles for Windows’ document but feel I could really do with something a bit more focussed on the job in hand.

Thank you.
