Footnoted in ArabTex do definitly not work. At least that's an official 
statement made by Prof. Lagally, the Author of ArabTex (I hope he is 
still working on it)
In Xetex I tried a regular footnote in Arabic text. I placed a footnote 
inside the Arabic example the Xetex distro is bundled with.
I certainly won't stard my edition without knowing for sure that 
footnotes work. Something like ednotes or ledmac would be the best 
solution but plain footnotes are okay too.
