I agree here in theory, and that is why I use the \footnotemark +
\footnotetext{This is my footnote.} syntax. If you want something
smaller in your paragraph, \let\fnm\footnotemark or something:

\let\fnm\footnotemark
This is a paragraph which requires a footnote\fnm\
and which I'd like to display without breaking it up
with the actual footnote text. This seems fairly logical to me.

\footnotetext{Does anyone know why Knuth was
recommended against using footnotes in the \TeX{}Book?}

Ah, much better!
Alternatively, I must highly recommend AucTeX, which I've recently
installed. Its support of folding is really excellent (except they
don't seem to be remembered between app quits?).

Regards,
Will
