In GBF (good for most Bibles) use <RF>....<Rf> to mark a footnote. In
ThML (good for commentaries, but also works fine for Bibles) it's
Cross-refs are handled with #....| in our implementation of GBF. It's
actually supposed to be <RX. ....> for GBF, but we don't use that. In
ThML it's <scripRef>....</scripRef>. If you want to specify a version
to link to use <scripRef version="KJV">....</scripRef> for example. And
if the text you're marking with the cross-ref is not the reference
itself, you can add a passage="...." parameter to the tag.
See the ThML & GBF spec pages for more info.
