gives the text of a footnote.
* <note> contains a note or annotation.
type describes the type of note.
resp (responsible) indicates who is responsible for the annotation: author, editor, translator, etc.
place indicates where the note appears in the source text.
anchored indicates whether the copy text shows the exact place of reference for the note.
target indicates the point of attachment of a note, or the beginning of the span to which the note is attached.
targetEnd points to the end of the span to which the note is attached, if the note is not embedded in the text at that point.
A note is any additional comment found in a text, marked in some way as being out of the main textual stream. All notes should be marked using the same tag, <note>, whether they appear as block notes in the main text area, at the foot of the page, at the end of the chapter or volume, in the margin, or in some other place.
Notes may be in a different hand or typeface, may be authorial or editorial, and may have been added later. Attributes may be used to specify these and other characteristics of notes, as detailed below.
Where possible, the body of a note should be inserted in the text at the point at which its identifier or mark first appears. This may not be possible for example with marginal notes, which may not be anchored to an exact location. For simplicity, it may be adequate to position marginal notes before the relevant paragraph or other element. In some cases, however, it may be desirable to transcribe notes not at their point of attachment to the text but at their point of appearance (at the end of the volume, or the end of the chapter - not, in general, when the notes appear at the foot of the page); in this case the target and targetEnd attributes should be used to specify the point of attachment. In some cases, the note is explicitly attached not to a point but to a span of text; for a full discussion of pointing to points and spans in the text, see section 6.6 Simple Links and Cross References.
General Comment: In addition to transcribing notes from the copy text, researchers may wish to annotate the electronic text itself, by attaching analytic notes in some structured vocabulary to particular passages of text, e.g. to specify the topics or themes of a text. The empty <span> element is provided for such applications; it is available only when the additional tag set for simple analysis is selected (see section 15.3 Spans and Interpretations).

In a retrodigitized text the reference to the note should be organized as described in http://www.tei-c.org/P4X/CO.html#CORS and http://www.tei-c.org/P4X/CO.html#COXR

Be aware that the notes for specific use have their own elements. In particular there is the app-element with the related elements for a critical apparatus.
