Dear partners in crime,
I have come across a situation where, in a left-to-right document, I need to
make the footnotes operate right to left: that is, the footnote numeral and
rule should be on the right side of the page. Now when using the global
direction changes that eomega/Gamma offers, this is trivial for a global
right-to-left document (\pagedir TRT and \bodydir TRT are the global
settings), but in a globally left-to-right document I have not been able to
get this to work locally.
locally switch the text and paragraph directions respectively, but not the
footnote markers and rule. This is correct behavior of course. But I have an
article that includes a long right-to-left extract with footnotes, and those
footnotes need to be RL in the sense described above (numeral + rule). Is
there any way to add a parameter option to \setupfoonotes which,
between---say, a \start-\stop---that can locally switch the location of the
numeral and marker to RL?
Please help: I'm supposed to send this thing to the printer next week:-))
PS \pagedir TRT and \bodydir TRT don't seem to help this proble when applied
in a local context.
