I have a table in a minipage with multiple, short footnotes. These are typeset one per line. However, I would like to have these in 'paragraph' mode to save space. I have tried \usepackage[para]{footmisc} but it does not seem to do anything. Is there a way to do this?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[para]{footmisc}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\begin{document}
\renewcommand{\footnoterule}{\vspace{-2pt}}
\begin{table}
\caption{My caption}
\begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
\begin{tabular}{ll}
\toprule
 A & B \\
\midrule
test\footnote[1]{note1} & text \\
test\footnote[2]{note2} & text\footnote[3]{note3} \\
\bottomrule
\end{tabular}
\end{minipage}
\end{table}
\end{document}

use package threeparttablex

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[para]{threeparttablex}
\begin{document}

\begin{table}
  \begin{threeparttable}
    \caption{foo}
    \begin{tabular}{ccl}
      foo\tnote{a} & bar\tnote{b} & baz and so on with text in this column\\
      foobar       & barfoo       & foobaz\tnote{c}
    \end{tabular}
    \par\medskip
    \footnoterule
    \begin{tablenotes}
    \item [a] first note 
    \item [b] second note 
    \item [c] the third note
    \end{tablenotes}
  \end{threeparttable}
\end{table}

\end{document}

beautiful; thank you! I was not aware of either threeparttable or threeparttablex. –  prettygully Jun 7 '11 at 22:54
