I do something similar, but with Unicode superscripts. An example with 
lots of footnotes:

Excerpt:

>A good value for T would be the average temperature of the entire observable universe. The universe is mostly empty; T is around the temperature of cosmic background radiation in space. The lowest reasonable estimate for this temperature is 2.7 degrees Kelvin.² A lower temperature means less energy usage, less energy usage allows more computations, and more computations raises the upper limit on password strength.

I borrowed this convention from a couple other capsules already using 
it.
