Sebastien, you may have tried this already, it kinds of does what you want
but not quite. It may be a starting point though:

try inserting this ERT command just before your footnote: \footnotesize{
(ending with an open brace, no closing brace)
then, just after your footnote, insert, in ERT: } (just the closing brace)
(see enclosed lyx file for details)

This kludge should bring  the size of the footnote mark down to
footnotesize (the usual size for footnote marks, actual size depends on
the base point size of your doc). The problem is that it will put the
footnote mark where a normal superscript would go. If you have a big font
(such as, for instance, in book titles), the footnote mark will be in the
middle of the line. It is not too bad for section and chapter titles
(depending on your class and chapterstyle, of course).
Still, it may be a starting point. You may have to add other ad hoc latex
commands to elevate the footnote mark)

Hope it helps,

Stefano

 If you put a footnote at the end of a title (sometimes it has to be

Thanks for your quick reply. I tried what you suggested--inserting a protected
return within the footnote itself. Upon output to PDF, there is now an error
message, although the document does compile. The result is that the footnote
mark and the corresponding footnote now disappear completely from the output.

But perhaps I wasn't clear enough in my question: the problem is the format of
the footnote reference mark itself at the end of (or even within) the text of a
section or chapter title. I'm wondering if it's possible to change the format of
the reference mark, so that it doesn't get set in large bold type and stick
out awkwardly.
