The footmisc package is quite useful for changing the layout/style of a footnote text itself. Eg:

\renewcommand\footnotelayout{\scriptsize}

However, how do you change the size of the footnote number/counter (not in the body of your document, but in the footnote itself). I don't see any reference to this in the footmisc package.

Thanks!

One possibility is to redefine \@makefntext:

\documentclass{article}
\makeatletter
    \long\def\@makefntext#1{\parindent 1em\noindent
            \hb@xt@1.8em{%
                \hss\@textsuperscript{\huge\@thefnmark}}#1}%
\makeatother

\begin{document}
Test\footnote{test}
Test\footnote{test}
\end{document}

enter image description here

However, this now undoes the \renewcommand\footnotelayout{\scriptsize} command :) –  JMH Aug 5 '12 at 7:44

This will fix that problem FYI: \makeatletter \long\def\@makefntext#1{\parindent 1em\noindent \footnotelayout \scriptsize \hb@xt@0.8em{% \hss\@textsuperscript{\tiny\@thefnmark}}#1}% \makeatother –  JMH Aug 5 '12 at 7:48
