Footnotes in tables?

I tried inserting \footnote in the column name of a table. The footnote did not appear at the bottom of the page as expected. Can someone help me?

A sample code is provided below:

\begin{table}[htbp]
  \centering
  \scriptsize
    \begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|c|c|}
    \hline   
      \textbf{Queries} & \textbf{NUR}\footnote{No of unigram models satisfying user 
        preference} & \textbf{NBR}\footnote{No of bigram models satisfying user 
        preference} & \textbf{UCHR}\footnote{class hit rate for unigram models} & 
      \textbf{BCHR}\footnote{class hit rate for bigram models} \\

Tables are usually furnished with table notes. If you show some code in form of a minimal example, specific help will be much easier. –  Thorsten Donig Mar 3 '12 at 10:57

A full example as requested would be much more helpful. –  Thorsten Donig Mar 3 '12 at 13:34

You can use the tablefootnote package with \tablefootnotes inside the table instead of ordinary \footnotes:

\documentclass{article}
%\usepackage{hyperref}% if you use hyperref, load it before tablefootnote
\usepackage{tablefootnote}

\begin{document}

\begin{table}[htbp]
  \centering
  \scriptsize
    \begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|c|c|}
    \hline   
      \textbf{Queries} & \textbf{NUR}\tablefootnote{No of unigram models satisfying user 
        preference} & \textbf{NBR}\tablefootnote{No of bigram models satisfying user 
        preference} & \textbf{UCHR}\tablefootnote{class hit rate for unigram models} & 
      \textbf{BCHR}\tablefootnote{class hit rate for bigram models} \\
    \hline
    \end{tabular}
\end{table}

% \newpage
% for making easier the testing of the hyperlinks
