Creating strategy for footnotes, how get Tinderbox NOT to ignore the ^

I am working on a strategy to automated footnote management. I need to be able to grab a number value from another note’s attribute, which is easy enough. The result I want is to get something that looks like this [^1], to [^2].

Here is what I’ve got: There is some text.[^^value($FNNo("FN1"))^]

My problem is that Tinderbox thinks the first “^” is a mistake and ignores it. Assume $FNNo(“FN1”)=1, Tinderbox returns this “[1]”. I want it to return [^1]. Is there anyway to get Tinderbox to do this?

^^ is interpreted as a caret. Perhaps you need ^^^value()

Perfect! That did the trick.
