Is there any way to solve this, or is there an assumption that there
only one reference to each footnote in a single document.
afaik xsl 1.0 doesn't support detached footnote references, fo:footnote
formatting object generates both footnode reference and body. You can
generate only one footnote and ask for keeping some block, containing
all your footnote references on the same page, or may be markers can
help you, not sure.
I haven't tried it yet, but since you are generating the footnote from
some markup, you should be able to just have subsequent references to
the footnote generate the appropriate number (just as you would for any
other cross reference) without creating footnote proper. This assumes
that that footnote itself should occur only once in the doc.
If what you want is the footnote to appear on a page if and only if it
is the first reference on that page, no way to do that in XSL 1.0. I
think this comes under the requirement I submitted a week or so ago to
be able to do page-location-sensitive stuff at the FO level, such as
putting out a page reference for a cross ref only if the thing
referenced is not on the same page as the reference. Should be easy
enough to express this in the FO markup and easy enough for
implementations to resolve it at pagination time (but easy for me to
say, having never tried to implement FO).
