	Quick response, sorry.  Just guessing, but the HTMLHREF filters 
probably remove the inlined footnote, in lieu of a subscripted number or 
symbol which is a clickable link and, in the URL, includes the footnote 
number in the entryAttributes() for the module entry.  If you run the 
sword/examples/cmdline/lookup tool on your module and verse, you'll see 
how the footnote is stored in the entryAttributes dump at the end.
Hope this helps.
