I've got a \tabularx with two \footnote marks immediately followed by two \footnotetext. I would like them to show up on the same page, but tex is pushing the table to the following page making relating the footnotes to the table difficult. I tried \samepage, but that doesn't seem to keep them together. Thoughts?

    Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: You can use backticks ` to mark your inline code as I did in my edit. Also, please, check if this question: Footnotes in tables? helps – henrique Sep 27 '12 at 22:49

    LaTeX really wants you to use a style such that the footnote text comes at the bottom of the table rather than the bottom of the page. The easiest way to get that is to put a minipage around the tabularx (but inside the floating table environment) to get the footnote text on the page of a float would require some serious hacking of the output routine. – David Carlisle Sep 27 '12 at 22:57

I suggest you try the package tablefootnote. According to its documentation, it solves several problems with tables and footnotes, and integrates table footnotes with the footnotes in the the body text. From the example provided in the documentation, it handles footnotes in floating tables. Important for you: The documentation describes procedures for handling several ‘border cases’.
