Summary description: Placing footnotes in tables
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 

Provides the command \tablefootnote{...} to be used in a table environment, 
where \footnote{...} would not work and would need to be replaced by 
\footnotemark in the table and \footnotetext{...} after the table environment 
ended. Additionally the counters for footnote and (when the hyperref package is 
used) Hfootnote would need to be adjusted manually. Just using 
\tablefootnote{...} in the table does all this automatically. Known issues: 
sidewaystables (from the rotating package) do not get their footnotes at the 
same page. Pages with tables with footnotes, which are rotated with the 
(pdf)lscape-package, will break the hyperlinks to the table-footnotes on that 
page. When a table with (table)footnotes floates to another place, its 
footnotenumbers are not automatically adapted.
