Second revision of footmisc.dtx

i found another bug in the footmisc i installed yesterday (it was actually corrected in the version that had previously been on ctan; the version i installed yesterday had the same version number as the one already there...) the new version is v5.3c, and it even works in the part of my test suite that doesn't live in the same subtree, and therefore got forgotten yesterday... any unfortunate who updated their copy of footmisc yesterday should update again -- sorry. files updated are macros/latex/contrib/footmisc.dtx and footmisc.pdf Robin Fairbairns For the CTAN team

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
