Subject: Re: [docbook] Recommended way to markup tables with internal footnotes?...

If you want footnotes that are entered inside a table to appear at the page 
bottom instead of the bottom of the table, you could do it with a 
stylesheet customization instead of changing your markup.  There really is 
no replacement for footnote if you want bottom-of-page footnotes.

But the customization to get this requires modifying several templates.  In 
fo/footnote.xsl, you will have to find the places where a table ancestor is 
checked, and change the behavior to use normal footnote processing.  It 
would require modifying at least there templates:

<xsl:template match="footnote">

<xsl:template match="footnote" mode="footnote.number">

<xsl:template name="table.footnote.block"> (make this template empty)
