duplicate footnotes in PDF
Last modified: 2014-06-18 03:49:30 EDT
Description of problem:
If the same URL is repeated on a page it produces two identical footnotes. It would be nice if Publican could detect this and reuse the first footnote for the subsequent ones.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add two <ulink> elements that point to the same URL so they will appear on the same page.
2. Generate pdf
Two identical footnotes are produced
One footnote referred to by both.
The docbook element <footnoteref> may be useful here.
by "nice" I mean "professional-looking" ;-)
It would also be great if a similar idea could be applied to all footnotes. ie. if the content is identical and they are being rendered for the same page.
This behaviour would need to be done in FOP because publican can't know if two links are on the same page since the page is laid out by FOP.
