Sounds like good advice, Art, and thanks for that explanation on how FM handles footnotes.

If you have to fake it out (which I wouldn't recommend, but which you may be able to get away with if you're not following a strict academic style guide), I'd just add a superscript number manually. This will cause you more problems if you add material to the tables so that the page break change... which would be another reason to duplicate the footnote text, IMHO.
