I created a footnote to define a term in a document. All went well,
except that the term occurs in more than one location on the same page
and I want to duplicate the number of the footnote in the text for the
other instances of the term, but have the text of the footnote appear
only once at the bottom of the page.

I started by copying the '1' after the first instance of the term and
pasting it at the end of the second instance of the term, but this
created a new footnote '2' with the text of the footnote at the bottom
of the page duplicated.

So I deleted footnote 2 and decided that I would just put a superscript
'1' at the end of the subsequent instances of the term. This works, but
I can't get the superscript 1 to look the same as the footnote '1.' The
footnote '1' is in some other font and heaven knows what size and
position it is in. I can select it, but selecting paragraph or character
dialog window doesn't reveal what its settings are. The character
dialog box just says it is 'normal.' The paragraph dialog box has a tab
for indents and spacing, which just echoes the style that is applied to
the whole paragraph, and the font tab is missing.

Where are the settings for the superscript numerals used in a footnote?
