[Tex/LaTex] Change footnote “numbering” temporarily


I would like to change my footnote "numbering" style temporally to letters (a,b,c …) the default numbering beeing numbers (1,2,3 …).

This is needed only for specific paragraph, so I can't use the


at the beginning of the document.

a\footnote{a} b\footnote{b}

c\footnote{c} d\footnote{d}


You'll get footnotes numbered 1, 2, a, b, 3.

You might also consider the packages manyfoot and bigfoot that provide multiple footnote schemes.
