Word Macro: Footnotes to inline text ?

I know that we've got some level 100 Word ninjas on this forum, with far better macro skills than I have (I haven't mastered this ninja art in its most basic form yet).

A common thing that I need to do while pre-processing e-books is to transform footnotes into inline text. A footnote in Word is actually separated into 2 different things:
  • the footnote mark
  • the text of the footnote
I'd like to replace the mark and get something like <span class="footnote">Text</span>. This mean that I would have to iterate through footnotes, grab the text and replace the mark with the text.

Any one with enough Word macro ninja skills to help me on this one ? I really need to level up, but I'm kinda stuck with this one
