Some examples of footnoting and endnoting can be found in:
2. Electronic Journals and journal articles
3. Pre-Print archives/self-archiving of academic papers.
4. Online books
5. Online conferences
A good start for discussing the limitations of footnoting on the web,
regarding tools, markup strategies, and presentation, is Paula
Petrik's "Scholarship on the Web: Managing & Presenting Footnotes &
Endnotes."  Paula doesn't discuss microformats, but in addition to
markup examples, she also points to various discussions about
footnoting/endnoting at the W3C and others. It's very brief, but it
might be helpful.
I'm glad to help put footnoting through the microformats process,
find specific examples, et cetera. I already have a number of
examples from my research on electronic scholarship that I can
contribute to a footnotes-examples page.
