Hypertext Help with LaTeX


Footnotes can be produced in one of two ways. They can be produced with one command, the \footnote command. They can also be produced with two commands, the \footnotemark and the \footnotetext commands. See the specific commands, below, for information on why you would use one rather than another.

Note that footnotes associated with "floated objects" like tables or figures may have a problem insofar as the footnote might not follow the floated object. This can be alleviated by putting the object inside a minipage environment.
