Sorry for a second mail, that fixes the bug but leaves the footnote link
an empty string. You would also need to add something in to (from the
name="_ftn1" title=""><span class="MsoFootnoteReference">
name="_ftn1" title="">link<span class="MsoFootnoteReference">
so that the footnote link was visible and clickable.
