# placing a footnote in a table [duplicate]

It seems that placing a footnote in a table is different a footnote in the text. Consider this table

\begin{table}
\centering
\caption{Simulation parameters}
\label{sim-param}
\begin{tabular}{| p{2cm} | p{5.1cm} |}
\hline
Processing Nodes &  UltraSPARC III ISA   \\
interconnect \footnote{the text of footnote}        &  something \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}


In the pdf file, I see the number 1 at the top of interconnect but there is no the text of footnote in the text.

Any way to fix that?
