Notes

These are internal notes that are usually not exported and only visible to team members with write access.

But this is not a safe place to store sensible information. It is just a convenience for the reader to not be bothered with notes stored here for the authors for later use. The security level is about suppressing the representation by a CSS style. Therefore consider this as a convenience for the reader, not as a security tool.

 

The text of notes sections is also indexed.

References

Often these proofs are not easily distinguishable from further information. In this case you may want to skip the reference section in favour for the resource list.
