I am editing a .tex manuscript for a journal that uses square brackets (i. e., [ ]) around the footnote numbers in the text, but not in the footnotes themselves.  I would be really grateful for any information about how to do this---or , indeed, to learn whether it is even possible.  I have used LaTex for years, but have always only used the standard packages.
