This package is long-established and widely used.  It derives from
several pieces of work done in pre-LaTeX 2e days by other authors;
over the years, there is none of that basis that I have not developed
and/or improved.

A .tds.zip file is available on CTAN.

foot­misc – A range of foot­note op­tions

A col­lec­tion of ways to change the type­set­ting of foot­notes. The pack­age pro­vides means of chang­ing the lay­out of the foot­notes them­selves (in­clud­ing set­ting them in ‘para­graphs’ — the para op­tion), a way to num­ber foot­notes per page (the per­page op­tion), to make foot­notes dis­ap­pear in a ‘mov­ing’ ar­gu­ment (sta­ble op­tion) and to deal with mul­ti­ple ref­er­ences to foot­notes from the same place (mul­ti­ple op­tion). The pack­age also has a range of tech­niques for la­belling foot­notes with sym­bols rather than num­bers.

Some of the func­tions of the pack­age are over­lap with the func­tion­al­ity of other pack­ages. The para op­tion is also pro­vided by the many­foot and big­foot pack­ages, though those are both also port­man­teau pack­ages. (Don't be se­duced by fn­para, whose im­ple­men­ta­tion is im­proved by the present pack­age.) The per­page op­tion is also of­fered by foot­npag and by the rather more gen­eral-pur­pose per­page
