I know this is a pagemaker group, but I'm getting desperate, and the
problem might be one that's common to both systems. Here it is:
I'm working on Layout for the California State

get will be 60,71,82,93,104. At the bottem, you'll get 6:
(superscripot) 0, and so one.

weird formatting problem going on.
I really, REALLY don't want to have to convert to plain text and
manually key in every footnote...so if anyone could help, I'd be very
