Hi Jose Luis,

Indeed the example you sent does not work as expected, but as far as I remember for nested footnotes one can use the following construction (I found this exmaple in my archives…):

%%%% begin nested-footnotes.tex

This\footnote{Or that\note[footB], if you prefer.}%
\footnotetext[footB]{Or possibly even the other\note[footC].}%
\footnotetext[footC]{It could be something entirely different.}
is a sentence with nested footnotes.

%%%% end nested-footnotes.tex

Best regards: OK
