Does using the other format (Numbers=Lining) validate?

You're right; I must not be using the same version. That gives me a  
whopping 98 errors and two warnings. I'm using the fink unstable tex  
installation, which includes v1.12. I'm guessing then I should be  
using a more recent package. Any particular package recommendable?

I actually know a professor who still uses Word 5.1 specifically  
because of this.

And according to Chicago (which incidentally doesn't work too well in  
TeX using jurabib with footnote citations), the note numbers should  
be full size, not raise and followed by a period.

Anyway, there's something wrong with that code above; maybe it's just  
because I'm not up to date. It doesn't like the \@makefntext. It  
compiles but gives a 'Missing \begin{document}' warning, and prints  
out akefntext. So I tried getting rid of the '@' (\makefntext), and  
that didn't work either.

Thanks for your continued help,
