Find us someone willing to put in the work to produce a Mac package.
The build has been done before, but not in a manner representing a
complete, install-ready package. We've been asking, but no one has been
willing to step up to take on the task.
Check footnote 4 here:

ThML can be thought of as "HTML plus goodies," namely <note>,
<scripRef>, <sync>, and variants. However, ThML is not considered the
proper, sufficiently modern method for module encoding today. There are
a few sticks in the mud like myself who persist with it.

If it were a Xiphos bug, from the menubar: Help -> Report Bug.
But I don't perceive this as a Xiphos bug. I believe the engine filter
is where the mistake has occurred. I don't understand why the '+'
character would be interpreted to its %2B hex equivalent.
Also, typically notes of this sort are labeled by letters or digits. Is
there a reason why you're using non-alphanumerics?

The longest footnotes in NET are at Ecc 1:1 and Song 5:4. Having that
volume of text as a footnote is absurd to me. That's why it's good that
the notes are a separate commentary-style module.
