Are footnotes usually a smaller font size than the rest of a paper?

My paper itself is in a 12 point font size. Should the footnotes be of a smaller point size?

    You could put the footnotes in a font 10, but I wouldn't let them be any smaller than that. You want to differentiate them from the text, but not make them so small they're unreadable!

    Ok, that's what I thought. Thanks!

    You're welcome.
