I didn't know that was a feature in emacs. It isn't in the emacs I
have installed, but that's Emacs 24.3, which isn't the latest version.
This hasn't ever been a feature in the info browser, except for files
that use separate nodes for footnotes.

There is a command M-C-f that shows the footnotes, C-x 1 makes them go
away again.
