Thanks so much for posting this up and formatting it all, it's really great!

Don't worry about the footnote problem, there is a bug with footnotes which admins can fix by changing the input format of the text, which I have now done. If you have any problems with future articles just start a thread in the feedback forum with a link.

you're welcome!

actually i think i worked out how to fix the problem myself: as you know, it happens when you want to put part of the footnote text in italics using the bbcode tags, but i found they were fine when i used the html "em" tags. but i only discovered this half way through putting it up, hence the 3 different edits...
