We want to typeset a longish paper on palaeography.
As we'll need a lot of special characters, that we all have in one  
Unicodefont, we decided to try doing so using XeLaTeX. There are also  
a lot of tiny clips (most about 5 x 5 mm) from manuscripts-scans that  
the text refers to. It would be a waste of space to insert them  
properly as pictures usually would be, collecting them at the end of  
the paper would be impractical (there would be up to 30 references on  
one page) and just inserting them into the text would ruin the line- 

In the book "The Palaeography of Gothic Manuscript Books. From the  
Twelfth to the Early Sixteenth Century" by Albert Derolez Cambridge  
University Press has solved the problem very elegantly by using two  
sets of footnotes: one for the ordinary ones and one for the examples  
at the bottom of the page, depending on how many there are of each,  
neatly arranged in relation to each other. I've uploaded a scan if  
anybody wants to have a look: http://img248.echo.cx/img248/8566/ 

The book states that it was typeset using LaTeX2e -- so it should be  
Does anybody know, how they might have achieved this layout?
Thanks in advance for your help!
