personally i prefere inline notes so far. it's still a lot of button pressing to get to the notes and i always read them, and when there are a lot i've found this gets tedious on a cybook (on my eb1150, on the other hand, with touchscreen and hyperlink ability, it's easy and pleasant. just saying.). they can easily be distinguished from the main text in many ways (an hr rule before and after, slightly reduced text size, indent...).

luckily, epub will be able to support TRUE footnotes, at the foot of the page, despite the reflowable text. won't THAT be nice.
