It shouldn't be necessary to postprocess the html. If [About] fails,
PRE_BODY_CLOSE does work, as far as I can tell. I think you failed to
see the footer in some nodes because your css made the new footer text
overlap with the last line of node text.

In general I don't think it's possible or desirable for PRE_BODY_CLOSE
text to end up on the navigation line at the bottom. That line might be
quite long, depending on the node names, see, e.g.,
and with short nodes there is no navigation line at the bottom at all,
unless we change that. (Just depends on the WORDS_IN_PAGE variable.)

So, all in all, I think the PRE_BODY_CLOSE text has to follow the
navigation line. Which is why I started looking into the "About" button.
(One might wish there was a way to define new navigation buttons, but I
don't think there is. Been too long since I was working on all this ...)

Later ... -k
