Dear Bastien,

we want to have a "traditional" reference section in a software
documentation we are currently writing using org-mode. Org's Footnote
feature is almost perfect for the job, however, I prefer the "[123]"-
type of reference rather than the superscript notation org generates for
HTML-export. Is there a way to change the appearance of footnotes
(still hyperlinked, of course) to the square-bracket version in HTML

Now there is a new option `org-export-html-footnote-format'.

You can set this to " [%s]" and the references will be in the format
you describe.

Thanks for this idea,

EXCELLENT, thank you!

Small things:

(1) Using the "fn:" style of footnotes, org generates a "Footnotes:" section in HTML export. In org-footnote.el I found that I might need to set org-footnote-tag-for-non-org-mode-files to change "Footnotes" to "References" (or some other name), however,
(setq org-footnote-tag-for-non-org-mode-files "References")
does not seem to work for me.

(2) If, with
(setq org-export-html-footnote-format " [%s]")
we now have a "[123]"-style of footnotes (that works great!), the list of footnotes/references at the end of the document should also have the square-bracket-notation.

(3) I believe that the square-bracket-style might be of interest to many users and maybe there should be a #+options-switch to toggle superscript- and square-bracket-style.
