I don't think I understand. Could you walk me through an example of the 
user's actions (if you don't find your answer below)?

BibleCS, at least, does know to interpret <scripRef> elements in ThML as 
scripture references. A mouseover will result in a popup of the text in 
the current active Bible. A click will change the current verse to the 
first verse in the reference.

But I'm not sure what that has to do with footnote numbers in the Bible 
text. If you're looking to click on a footnote number in the text of the 
NET bible and have it change the commentary module to the NET notes and 
change its verse to the verse containing the footnote marker (or even 
scroll to the specified footnote within the list of notes for a specific 
verse), then no, none of that is currently possible.
