    I guess it's a personal preference, but out-of-the-box, Norm's
    stylesheets render footnote marks at 90% of the surrounding font size
    -- it's a barely noticeable difference, and I find them way too large.
    I'm pretty sure LaTeX, just for example, will render a footnote mark
    at 7 points in 10 point text.

    You probably saw Nikolai's suggestions in another mail -- this is a
    problem that is bugging me at the moment as well, so I will see if I
    can work his suggestions into Norm's stylesheets. Let me know if you
    come up with anything.
