PDF: inconsistent numbering for ulinks and footnotes
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:35:34 EST
Description of problem:
Numbering for ulinks and footnotes are inconsistent.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
* Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.2 (Tikanga)
* Firefox 3.0.1 <http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/>
Always for the book mentioned below.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. "svn co http://svn.fedorahosted.org/svn/selinuxguide"
2. "cd selinuxguide/community/trunk/SELinux_User_Guide; make html-en-US; make pdf-en-US"
In this example, the counting for ulinks and footnotes is reset after each chapter (makes sense). There are a few instances where this is not the case, and the numbering is off.
* see the last bullet point on page 5, "Risk report: Three years of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4". This is a ulink followed by a footnote. It should be . See pdf0.png
See the bottom of page 19: "Managing Software with yum".  should be . The footnote with  is numbered  instead of  or . See pdf1.png

Number to be consistent (or at least no allowed to go up to ).
Same results when viewed with Adobe Reader.

The issue here is that there isn't a space or comma between the two numbers.
On page 5: link 9 is for the ulink, link 10 is for the footnote.
On page 19: link 2 is for the ulink, link 3 is for the footnote.
I'm not sure this is a practice we wish to support. Assigning to the great Editor in Chief for his input.
This bug affects other uses of multiple references at the same location.

Resized footnote ref number and added padding to prevent numbers collapsing together.
