In my opinion, there is no "correct" way outside the bounds of a test in a writing classs - this is a matter of personal taste. Reference style may vary to fit the type of document.

In all cases, the main thing to consider is whether the reference methodology is useful to the reader. Does the reader understand that the reference markers are active links, and do they actually work?

Matt, I disagree with the idea of using superscript for cross references. That makes it bit harder to click on them because the user has to be more careful about the mouse pointer location, and superscript is hard for some readers to see. But it's your choice.

I've used the same convention for reference citations, but have made them superscript and linked them via bookmark to the references themselves.

I am working on a document someone half-wrote (I'm pretty much finishing it).
He uses references throughout the document, but has them set like this:

Applications of this system include a broad range of disciplines such as engineering [1], writing [2], forecasting [3][4],

(Obviously I've changed the wording to not give out information on the document.)

Clicking the numbers leads to the reference section and the reference number.

Is this the correct way to do this or is there another more preferred way?
