Description

19 years ago
There's a tradition to add URLs to plaintext as footnotes (see an example [1]
yourself). Would be nice, if we would offer that as (non-default IMO) option.

I may hack that together sometime. Just need to figure out, how to express
arbitary-length arrays using XPCOM.

Specs/Implementation:
1. Create facility for footnotes
A function takes a string, stores it, inserts a hint like " [n]" into the
output, and at the end of the output, it outputs something like "\n[n] string"
for each stores footnote)
2. At closing </a>-tag, add a footnote for the href of the opening <a>-tag,
enclosed in angle brackets.

Seems like a very nice feature.

This is related to bug #23953 BTW -- Conversion of footnotes to links. It's the opposite, actually ...

Changing personal priorities. Giving away most of my bugs :-( (reassigning to
default owner).

I will still track these bugs closely. If you need my input, feel free to ask me.

New owner: Please do *not* close these bugs (as WONTFIX or whatever you may
find) unless they are fixed. Rather, reassign to <nobody@mozilla.org>, if you
don't want to work on them.

Based on bug 222549, allow this as an option when printing, separate from the
screen display option.
