A couple of footnote questions:
1. Is there an option for choosing one's own reference mark for any
given footnote, like in Plain?
2. Is there a conversion option for the famous nine reference mark
sequence (\fnsymbol in LaTeX):
star, dagger, double dagger, section, inverted `P', parallel,
star-star, dagger-dagger, double dagger-double dagger
I did not see it in the manual.
3. Is there a way to control the distance between the footnote rule and
the firstline of the footnote?
4. ConTeXt places the footnote reference mark just on the outside of the
margin. Can I place it inside? Can I indent the first paragraph of the
footnote with the reference mark (like in LaTeX)?
Can I make an entire document default to oldstyle numbers? (Probably
not, since Knuth mapped these glyphs in a strange way).
That's the end of the rain shower for now, but I'll be back with more
