# How to use text figures (numerals) for the footnote numbers in memoir?

I am using the memoir class with Xetex and have the option for text figures on. Every thing works as expected, but the numbers of the footnotes are capital number while all other are (as wished) lowercase (old style). How to set the footnote numbers old style too?

This is a working example:

\documentclass[10pt,twoside]{memoir}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage{xltxtra}
%\setmainfont[Numbers={OldStyle},Ligatures={Common, Rare, Historic}]{Minion Pro}

• Try removing xltxtra: it redefines the superscripts, see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/76470/… – clemens Mar 19 '14 at 21:17
• May I suggest that normally fontspec uses superior numbers for footnotes, ang these are always lining figures, in accordance to the tradition of professional typography – for reasons of legibility. – Bernard Mar 19 '14 at 21:43
