Hi Bastien,
Sorry I wasn't clear. I did try removing the footnotes from the list of
activated links. 

My problem is really different:

When I try to sort footnotes with C-u C-c C-x f s all my legal citations
such as:

See Golodetz & Co Inc v Czarnikow-Rionda Co Inc (The Galatia) [1979] 2
Lloyd's Rep 450 

produce new footnotes:


As I said, I can live with this thanks to hacks suggested on this list,
but it seems that I am always running into the problem in contexts that
require new functions or macros. I'm not much of a programmer, but I was
looking for some simple way to disable those pesky plain footnotes for
*all* purposes.

Thanks for you interest in this, and have a good Christmas!
