LaTeX- Footnotes in itemize (and minipages).

Sometimes LaTeX can be a real pain… Today I wrote a document where I needed a caption inside a \item marker, e.g.:

	\item [ Something \footnote{More} ] Lorem ipsum

But that didn’t work. The footnote number was displayed, but there was no footnote at the bottom of the page. A workaround is to include the package “footnote”, and create a “save not environment” for itemize, by including the following in the document header:

\makesavenoteenv{minpage}	% If you want to include minipages.
