I don't understand the distinction you're making between "the bible
window" and "the module window."  All content is from a module, some of
which are bibles.

Or are you referring to the previewer, typically left-bottom pane?

If you do mean the previewer...  It's just another pane.  It is filled
in nearly identical fashion to any other pane, using a font
specification taken from the module whose content is to be presented
there.  The font is knocked down one size, to reflect print-style
footnote appearance, but other than that the content to be presented
there (footnote text, or whatever else) is presented the same way as if
it were in the normal pane where the module appears.
