Jim,

I had an instance where I had to replicate a published report, and that 
report had Tables with footnotes as part of the regular footnote sequence. 
In FM this was not possible so I faked it as follows. I created a real 
footnote in the anchor paragraph for the table, and coloured the in-text 
footnote number white so it wouldn't show. Then I added a superscript number 
(same as the footnote number) in the table to make the reader think this was 
the real reference.
