Just a point of clarification and information:
It was noted earlier that BibleDesktop shows the notes correctly. This 
is not because BD is more tolerant, as was guessed, but because it does 
not have the same filter architecture. BD does not use the conf to 
determine what filter processing to do. At the moment it ignores all 
GlobalOptionFilters and allows the user to toggle all features. If the 
feature is present, say foot notes and the user tries to show them, they 
will show up. If they are not present then they won't. All feature 
toggles are handed to xslt to do the filtering. This is neither better 
or worse. But it points out that sometimes comparison of Sword to JSword 
(BD) can be misleading.
