Where does vide come from?

Vide is just one of the many Latin terms traditionally used in texts to instruct the reader or to provide some note about what’s on the page. These are associated with their use in notes or other citations in reference books and scholarly works. Many of these terms have traditionally been used in printed texts, where they are often abbreviated, but this is less common in digital media.
