### hypertex footnotes in miktex

Hi, I'm wondering how I can make a footnote in hypertex using miktex.  I
would also like to know how to make the increment the footnote symbol(not the
number) on a single page and then start over again on the next page at 1
symbol.

For example

text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text
text text text text text text text text text* text texttext texttext text
text text text text text text text text text text** ____________________ *
footnote **footnote

each additional footnote.  I would prefer to do this using hypertex.  My goal
is to produce a document that easy to use online as well as to read once it
has been printed. Jeremy

\usepackage[perpage,symbol*]{footmisc}

which is lamport's definition of footnote markers, not the multiple-*
one (and is slightly modified not to explode if there are more than 10
per page).

however, i would be surprised if that lot was hyperref (or hyper, or
anything -- you don't say which package you're using) safe.  do those
packages characteristically link footnotes?  ho hum ... if they do,
i've got yet another thing to add to my long-delayed next version of
footmisc.

Well, If what I want to do isn't available in hyperref...how could I just
make a simple footnote with a symbol and link it? Thanks Jeremy

\hyperlink{foo}{A sign}..... \hypertarget{foo}{the place to go}

I just tried running LaTeX over bbding.ins and bbding.dtx using both
WinShell and WinEdt. Both editors failed because they added a wholly
spurious .tex to the end of the filename.

This is probably not optimal behaviour: users will expect to be
able to install packages by running LaTeX on the distribution pair
without having to resort to a DOS window.

Is there a configuration option that can fix this?
