My school requires that dissertations follow a set of sometimes odd formatting requirements. We have a latex class file which does a reasonable job at bringing documents into compliance with their requirements. There is, however, one requirement that I have't got a clue how to make happen:
Footnote are supposed to be at the bottom of each page which can be accomplished by using footmisc. However, on the last page of a chapter the footnotes are supposed to be directly after the actual chapter text ends not at the bottom of the page.
Now I can solve individual cases by adding vspace, or simply not putting footnotes at the end of my chapters. However, I'm wondering if there is a way to modify the class file to make this happen automatically.
