    more specific, write in the text \footnote{Text I want to have at the bottom}. If you are struggeling with basic LaTeX commands, have a look at an introduction such as l2short.pdf

If bonzi wants the footnote marker to be enclosed inside square brackets (which is unusual), then a redefinition of \@makefnmark will be necessary




Some text\footnote{Some test footnote}
