[to the devels or testers] Anyone can dig into this? If this statement is
confirmed, it's strange.
Now, if there was some way to keep those footnotes on the correct page. The

The only workaround I know for footnotes is to create a text frame below the
main text frame and place the footnotes there, manually, on each page. This
has always been a nightmare in DTP. I cannot tell if Adobe people came up
with a nicer solution. To the best of my knowledge, Quark 6.5 doesn't handle
footnotes in a better way and maybe 7.x has something to offer...
Let us know.
