Using \footnotemark in a minipage with \footnotetext uses numbers to mark the footnote and letters to label the foot note text.

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
This\footnotemark[3] is a test\footnotemark[2].
\footnotemark[3]{test}
\footnotetext[2]{two}
\end{minipage}
\end{document}

produces Can this be fixed?

I looked at these questions (2 and 3) and played around with

\usepackage{footmisc}
\renewcommand\thempfootnote{\fnsymbol{mpfootnote}}

but couldn't work it out.

\documentclass[10pt]{article}
\renewcommand{\thempfootnote}{\arabic{mpfootnote}}
\begin{document}
\begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
This\footnotemark[3] is a test\footnotemark[2].
\footnotetext[3]{test}
\footnotetext[2]{two}
\end{minipage}

\end{document}

solution

The line \renewcommand{\thempfootnote}{\arabic{mpfootnote}} is what I was missing. Footnotes within minipage environments are printed with small letters (noted by Stefan Kottwitz in this question \footnotemark and \footnotetext in minipage). Willie Wong provided the solution.
