I am trying to add a footnote to a title in amsart in small caps, but constantly end up with upper case characters (even in math mode!)

\title{ text \footnote{ text }}

How can I get small caps in the footnote?

\title{ text \footnote{\normalfont\scshape\lowercase{text}}}. But a footnote on the title seems odd. – Gonzalo Medina Mar 18 '14 at 13:59
@GonzaloMedina they still are printed in uppercase – user48179 Mar 18 '14 at 14:06
If it is necessary to place a footnote on a title, the AMS recommendation is to use \footnotemark in the title, and a separate \footnotetext after it. You'll also have to provide an alternate for the running heads to omit the footnote material; \markright{...} will do the right thing with amsart. – barbara beeton Mar 18 '14 at 14:11
@barbarabeeton Could you please make that into an answer with some sample code using the \footnotemark and \footnotetext... Thanks, – kan Sep 7 '14 at 23:12
@barbarabeeton I would even upvote an answer. ;-) – Johannes_B Jun 7 '15 at 17:44
