Footnotes without superscript numbers.

In a long writing project, I want to use line numbers (which I see how to insert) and footnotes that refer to the line numbers.  I want clear text, without superscript numbers.    In Word 7, if I click "insert footnote," it automatically inserts a superscript number.    How do I create a footnote field at the foot of a page without superscripts?

About the best you can do is select a space as the "custom mark" for footnotes. You'll have to type in the line number manually, of course.
