I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be incorporating a lot of the great ideas/improvements suggested here into the latest revisions of my jsUtilities library and the footnoteLinks script itself (giving credit where it is due, of course). It will probably be a few days before I can get it all together and put it up on “my site”:http://www.easy-designs.net but I wanted to let you all know that your ideas are great and are not being ignored. If you made a suggestion and would like credit, please email me (aaron [at] easy [dash] designs [dot] net) your name and website (if it isn’t complete here in the discussion) and if your fix makes it in, I will add your info to the comments.
A few quick responses:
* To answer “Derek’s concern”:http://www.alistapart.com/comments/improvingprint?page=3#23 about excluding certain sections, currently that is not supported, but a @class@ of “ignore” on any element will effectively exclude it. Also, the script already has the ability to perform its duties on a uniquely identified section of your choosing and (based on my experience) I have not found a need for more. I keep my most important content (which is where I’d want the links pulled from) in a @div@ with an @id@ of “content.”
