It does have a notion of footnotes.  However, Word has various expectations
about footnote marks that cause some weirdness. 

It doesn't really have a concept of floats.  What it has instead is a
notion of box/frame that is explicitly positioned with respect to the page:
its page layout facilities really assume there's a human sitting there
deciding where to position things.
