Hello PF members,
I need a small help in latex in writing a report!
How to include footnotes (in the form of symbol!).
For e.g., i have 5 authors..for all these 5 authors i can use $^1$, $^2$, etc as author's address. I mean all are just numbers..
Now for 2 of the 5 authors i want add footnotes as symbols. That means 2 different symbols..
Can anyone help how to do this in latex...

thanks

Re: footnote_symbol

What class file are you using? What does \footnote in the \author environment do? In some class files (e.g. revtex) that produces a symbol and a footnote.
