# Several footnotes in the section heading

How can I insert two footnotes in the section headings?

\chapter[aaa]{aaa\protect\footnotemark\footnotemark}

\footnotetext{some text1}
\footnotetext{some text2}

When I use this syntax, I come up with a 12 appearing on the top of aaa (without any comma between 1 and 2) and both of the footnotes on the bottom of the page are numbered 2!

How can I change the numbers to symbols in the footnote?

If possible, don't footnote titles; one footnote to a title is already too much, two are evil. I know this is used in some academic fields, but from a typographic point of view (and from the reader's point of view too) this is really bad. –  egreg Oct 8 '13 at 15:20
@egreg -- i agree about the undesirability of footnotes in titles. but what is an acceptable alternative, if a citation or reference must be given? –  barbara beeton Oct 8 '13 at 15:44
@barbarabeeton The first paragraph, for instance. Of course no footnote would be even better. –  egreg Oct 8 '13 at 15:46
