Works just the same for Footer. Tested using a task and using On-demand as well - (you mention that you use IE-Plugin but as you know you need to use the Full Browser Version to use the On-demand extension objects).
Sample project attached in case you want to try it out for yourself. Extract to C:\Temp\Community\082 or change the paths in the NSQ.
HTH - Daniel.
