It means "footnotes labeled with characters available in Latin-1".
That means with a very small number of footnotes you can get pretty
superscript numerals for the labels.

The use of non-numeric labels is due to the fact that you can only
count to 3 with Latin-1 superscripts, and recycling when you run out
of labels is common to all of the "set of characters"-based footnote

IIRC there is an option that allows doubling the footnote label when
recycling, but that would look strange with numeric labels.
