Hi Idris,

I’m working on an article on this topic. But without bibligraphies, I
have never used myself in ConTeXt or in pandoc :-(.

If footnotes in ePub (or XHTML) have no links, how is the user supposed
to handle them?

I must be missing something, because I think footnotes are hardly
accesible in XHTML without links.

How about the system mode: \doifmode{*export}{\placefootnotes}?

I discovered this (http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Modes#System_modes)
after the reply from Hans to my own question.
