Description Lana Brindley 2008-05-11 21:13:11 EDT
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create Book using Publican
2. Include an xref
3. Publish book to PDF
Actual results:
Footnote numbers doubled, and missing the footnote (containing the URL) at the
bottom of the page.

Expected results:
Footnotes are numbered sequentially and the appropriate note and URL appear at
the bottom of the page.

Additional info:
Notes on example found in
On page 1 of the PDF, you refer to the "Red Hat Enterprise MRG Supported
Hardware Page" with footnote 1.  First, you've already used footnote 1 on the
previous page, and second (and probably a side effect), there is no
corresponding footnote at the bottom of the page.

On Page 4, again there's no footnote for footnote 4.

Oops - reproducible "every time" for this book. Probably not every time for

The footnote was inheriting it's font colour from the block containg the
footnote reference. Since these footnotes originated in a block with white text
the footnote was invisible.

Hardcoded the footnote font to black since footnotes will always be on a white
