I've been trying to use <ref name="whatever" /> to cite the same long source a second time. It's handy, but is it buggy? Using it caused text that followed, which included another citation, to be invisible. Not only does the following text become invisible, but the reference in it is also ignored. I tried many things. Clearly, it's the <ref name=... thingy causing the problem. I found a clumsy solution, by accident. If I add a blank dummy reference after the repeated reference, then only the blank dummy is invisible and the text that follows appears as normal. What the heck? Can someone take a look at Hightower-1616? The weirdness is near the end, in the last sentence before "Children: "
Now it occurs to me... maybe we're supposed to write <ref name="whatwever" /> <ref> </ref> to cite the same reference again, that is, with a dummy ref after it. This is what works, though it isn't what the instructions say to do.
