Footnotes not rendered properly when using multi columns layout

Hi, I’ve come across a rendering issue when converting Word documents to xhtml (this also apply to pdf conversion).

If a page uses a multi column layout and has footnotes associated with text on different columns, the Aspose rendering differs from Word. In Word, the footnotes (rendered at the bottom of the page) will be evenly distributed across all columns regardless of which column they link to. In Aspose, the footnotes will be rendered under the column they link to. This also causes the content of each column to differ between Word and Aspose as the space available in each column to render the text depends on the number of footnotes associated with that column.

Here’s a minimal reproduction document: Columns and footnotes.docx (15.0 KB)

And here are some screenshots to help visualise the problem.

Let me know if you require more details.
Thanks in advance.
