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?

\caption{My caption}
 A & B \\
test\footnote[1]{note1} & text \\
test\footnote[2]{note2} & text\footnote[3]{note3} \\

use package threeparttablex



      foo\tnote{a} & bar\tnote{b} & baz and so on with text in this column\\
      foobar       & barfoo       & foobaz\tnote{c}
    \item [a] first note 
    \item [b] second note 
    \item [c] the third note

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