I'm sorry, I actually thought of this and put that line in my .conf, but 
forgot to tell anyone.  The reason I forgot to mention this is that it 
still doesn't work for me.  In fact, the module does not show that it 
has any options available in BibleTime (as if it simply did not 
recognise GlobalOptionFilter=OSISFootnotes).  I'm using latest 
BibleTime (1.6.5, from CVS).  How do you get the footnotes to show? I 
see (1) in superscript, but only in KJV can I succeed in actually 
seeing the note (I have to select the small bit of text that contains 
the (1)).  I have the same problem with ESV -- I see the (1), but can't 
get the note to show.
