[xep-support] Footnotes - paragraph format?

Hello Jeremy,

Unfortunately footnotes as they described in XSL FO 1.0 aren't suitable for
such use. The only workaround I can think about based on markers. You
can create static-content area at the bottom of the page, then mark all
your footnotes as markers and place all retrieve-markers in static
content mentioned above. But since static area has fixed height this
approach has two evident drawbacks:
1. When there are few markers ("footnotes") on the page, empty gap
   will be left at its bottom.
2. Too mach markers on the page will lead to overflow.

Best regards,
Alexander Peshkov                             mailto:peshkov at renderx.com

JC> Is their a way that I can render footnotes in paragraph format? such as:

JC> 1) Footnote 1 2) Footnote 2 3) Footnote 3, etc...

JC> Instead of line by line format:

JC> 1) Footnote 1
JC> 2) Footnote 2
JC> 3) Footnote 3

JC> Thanks for any help! I am formatting a document that sometimes has 30 
JC> footnotes per page and most of them are simple word substitutions, so a 
JC> typical footnote looks like: "1) Or word" or another "2) Or animal" ... 
JC> Line format takes up half the page when doing a document like this.

JC> Thanks!

JC> Jeremy
