README for tameflts.sty, 2004/04/21, Uwe Lueck http://contact-ednotes.sty.de.vu . The files address the problem that LaTeX floats and \marginpar may cause misplacement of footnotes or footnote splits. (The LaTeX code makes me also expect problems with \enlargethispage). tameflts.sty provides * a simple, experimental fix, maybe just as a contribution to discussion and as a summary of what other authors have contributed; * many explanations -- so go on reading there. deml3541.tex demonstrates the fix and adds a few explanations. newbug.tex demonstrates a weakness of tameflts, or that such a simple approach does not perfectly suffice, rather LaTeX needs an essentially new mechanism for handling floats indeed. fltfltdk.tex varies deml3541.tex to test interaction with Mats Dahlgren's package floatflt. (The package was called `noreins.sty' earlier, in folder `noreinserts'. Added infos on compatibility 2005/04/21.)

tamefloats – Experimentally use \holdinginserts with LaTeX floats
LaTeX’s figures, tables, and \marginpars are dangerous for footnotes (and probably also \enlargethispage). Here is a proposal (a ‘patch’ package) to help, by using \holdinginserts in a simple way. It replaces the original problem with a new one — it is an experiment to find out whether the new problem is less bad (or it is just a contribution to the discussion, maybe just a summary of previous work). The files provide further information.
