    It's easy enough creating a template to change the default fonts for pages, but what I can't work out is how to change the default font and font size for footnotes/endnotes. It should be different from the main body in terms of size, but the same font. I found a script on the apple support forums, but 1. it doesn't do what I want it to do and 2. I haven't the foggiest about apple scripts.

    Thanks!

    You don't need anything so complicated. In Pages, go to View -> Show Styles Drawer (if it's not already visible). Click on Footnote Text, reformat to taste, then click the little arrow next to the name and select Redefine Style from Selection.

    Once you're done with it, I suggest making your own template to match.
