DSR, DSR Commands, .FOOTNOTE
*Conan The Librarian
The .FOOTNOTE command places the text following it at the bottom
of the current page if there is room. If there is not enough
room on the current page for the entire footnote, DSR places the
entire note at the bottom of the next page.
The .END FOOTNOTE command ends the footnote and restores any
case, fill, justify, spacing, or margin settings that you might
have changed within the footnote.
The right margin of the footnote will be the same as the right
margin in effect for the document at the time the footnote is
created. If you change the right margin of the document but
want the right margin of all footnotes to be the same, enter the
.RIGHT MARGIN command immediately after each .FOOTNOTE command to
set the same right margin for each footnote.
The left margin setting of the footnote is defaulted to 0.
The number of lines the footnote will occupy. This argument is
included only for compatibility with older versions of RUNOFF and
is not necessary or recommended.
