LaTeX supports the inclusion of footnotes in your text with the footnote command. The footnote command takes an optional argument, num, that you can use to change the default footnote number.
\footnote{Text for the footnote.}
In addition to the footnote command, you can also include footnotes with the footnote mark and footnote test commands. The footnote mark and footnote test commands are used in concert to place footnotes at the botton of a page.
