I don't think you can exclude the headers and footers but you can put the words in your Stop list. That will of course also exclude those words in the body.

Darn, that's what I was afraid of. Well, now I know for sure. Thanks for your help!

One possible workaround I could fathom would involve arranging the footer text as you want, then using a screen capture tool to snag an image of it. Then use the image for the footer.
If you took that approach the terms would still be found in the topics and you would still see the footers as intended. But search wouldn't find those terms.

Oooo, right on! Good thinking. I may try that.
