# [dev-context] Yet another footnote bug (or two).

Again, from playing with footnote examples on the Wiki.

\starttext
{\bfd This is text\footnote{And a footnote.}.}
This is text\footnote{With a footnote.}.
\stoptext

The footnote symbol shows up appropriately sized for normal text, not for
the extra-large text.  (It is boldface, though.)

On the other hand, in chapter headings, the opposite problem occurs -- the
footnote is too large.  Note, in the following example, that the footnote
in the chapter heading is a good bit larger than the x-height of the
neighboring font, whereas the footnote in the ordinary text is a little bit
smaller than the x-height of the neighboring font.

\starttext
\chapter{This is a chapter\footnote{And a footnote.}.}
This is text\footnote{With a footnote.}.
\stoptext
