A bit of Greasemonkeying

I haven't written anything here in a while, so here's me trying to get back into the game with a bit of Greasemonkey goodness.

I started reading the online version of Practical Common Lisp by Peter Seibel. I like the style and like it so far (first two chapters done).

When I read a book, I just can't help myself reading the footnotes when I encounter them. I know it distracts from reading the main text, but a lot of times I come across pretty interesting tidbits, so I think it's worthwhile.

The online version has footnotes, but they were just text (not links). So you have to scroll down to the end of the page, but then you'd lose your position in the main text.

Hence, this little Greasemonkey script.
