Are these people still using Just CRT's and Paper? Because the design does not seem to consider e-ink (screen refresh) and handhelds (orientation and Aspect ratio) in general.
Spot on. There ought to be coding specified so that footnote text can be entered at the footnote location, and then reading software can render it as best suited for any particular device. It's astonishing that it's not been added to ePub3 and yet we have all the bells and whistles (perhaps literally!) of audio and video support.
