# Distinct footnotes at the same place

This may be a basic question, but I'm having troubles figuring it out. I'd like to have two distinct footnotes at the same place in the text. However what i get is that the footnote numbers in the text are merged together, instead of separated by commas (e.g. 23, instead of 2,3). How do I fix this?

Can you give a MWE please? –  Harish Kumar Feb 13 '12 at 4:52

Please use the package footmisc. The specific implementation is \usepackage[multiple]{footmisc}, which will comma-delineate a series of footnotes.

You can use the footmisc package with the multiple option to obtain this output. Here is a minimal example:

\documentclass{article}
\setlength{\textheight}{100pt}% Just for this example
\usepackage[multiple]{footmisc}% http://ctan.org/pkg/footmisc
\begin{document}
Here is some text with a footnote\footnote{Hello\ldots}\footnote{\ldots world.}.
\end{document}

For some reason, this did not do the trick for me in the actual document I am working on (though it does work when I try a simple example, not mixing it up with other packages). Since I only have one such instance in the text, I can get away with inserting $^,$ between the footnotes, but I'm wondering why the footmisc didn't work out.
