As far as I know, footnotes are not supported directly. What I would 
suggest you do is below, but be warned - I have not tested this, let us 
know how it goes:

<a href="#footnote1" class="footnote">1</a>


<a name="footnote1" class="footnote-target">1</a>
<p class="footnote">Text of footnote</p>


Then in your CSS you need to define the class for footnotes.

The drawback with this is that you have to define the footnote numbers 
yourself, this would be a pain in anything but trivial docs. So, unless 
you get another suggestion from someone else which is better add a 
request to our issue tracker to add this feature to the skin - better 
still, add it yourself and submit a patch (we'll help on the dev list if 
you want to tackle this).
