double spaced text, single spaced footnotes

Dear all,

Is there any way of compiling a double-spaced .doc file with single spaced footnotes?

Failing that, is there any way of just compiling an entirely single-spaced document, main text plus footnotes. My word processor (Open Office) doesn’t seem to have any way of selecting all the footnotes together, so fixing double spaced footnotes a nightmare, but obviously its easy enough to change single-spaced main text to double-spaced.

I haven’t been able to work out how to do either of these things.

Cheers yous,
David
