Why won't my reference show up?

+3 votes
I made a number of revisions to Higgins-3437 but when I saved the profile, inline reference 13 doesn't display.  It actually should be reference 3, as the detailed reference appears third in the profile, but it doesn't show up at all.  I tried renaming it, took out some spaces that crept in, but nothing works.  I can't see anything wrong with it.  I just went back and found a couple more spaces that didn't belong.  When I took them out, the reference appears as number 3, but has messed up all the remaining references.  I went back and cancelled the space deletes, and it is better, but inline ref 3/13 still isn't showing. Please help.

I think the problem is your repeat of the second reference, where you have "<ref name="William Hendrick" /ref>" which should be just "<ref name="William Hendrick" />"
