Description
There are some minor presentation issues with how pages are laid out. In particular…
Add the date and time to the footer on every page, to the left and right of the subtitle, on even and odd pages respectively. If duplex is off, use the odd (right-hand) page layout.
Tidy the layout and positioning of legal notices and colophon notices for articles and reports.
The footer on the first page of an article should just show the page number, centred.
The paragraph before an itemised or numbered list should have a “keep with next” to prevent the first item in the list from being orphaned.
The second and subsequent lines of footnote text need to be indented and aligned with the first letter of the first line, not aligned flush to the left margin.

Proposed solution
These should be relatively easy to fix, so we will do them sooner rather than later, to get them out of the way. We may notice other things like this from time to time.

Resolution
The following are completed and tested:
Add the date and time to the footer on every page, to the left and right of the subtitle, on even and odd pages respectively. If duplex is off, use the odd (right-hand) page layout. Tidy the layout and positioning of legal notices and colophon notices for articles and reports. The footer on the first page of an article just shows the page number, centred.
There doesn’t seem to be a way to specify “keep with next” and footnote layout appears to be beyond our control.
