{footmisc} is a package for customizing the look of footnote symbols and footnote texts.

Among other things, footmisc allows for typesetting all a page's footnotes in one paragraph, which may be useful when many short footnotes -- such as mere references in author-year format -- are used. It also offers a "per page" option that resets the footnote counter for every new page, or a "side" option that places footnote text in the left or right margin rather than at the bottom of the page, and comes with alternative symbol sets that can be used instead of numbers.
