            README for the `finstrut' package
           \@finalstrut allowing vertical mode
                (C) Uwe Lueck 2011/02/24

`finstrut.sty' changes LaTeX's \@finalstrut (that is 
automatically inserted at the end of footnote text and 
paragraph table columns) so that it does not produce an 
extra empty line in vertical mode, e.g., with \lipsum from 
lipsum.sty for dummy text.

finstrut – Adjust behaviour of the ends of footnotes

The internal command \@finalstrut is used automatically used at the end of footnote texts to insert a strut to avoid mis-spacing of multiple footnotes. Unfortunately the command can cause a blank line at the end of a footnote. The package provides a solution to this problem.
