[sword-devel] proposed patch: adding n=X marker content to footnotes and xrefs

BPBible uses its own filters for notes to put the note number/letter in, so
it shouldn't affect BPBible at all.

Personally, I've never liked the *x/*n style and I think that in particular
*xA/*xB looks very ugly.
 BPBible just outputs the letter/number, but colour-codes the
note/cross-reference to distinguish between the two. This in my opinion
gives a much cleaner look.

God Bless,
 For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone,
declares the Lord God; so turn, and live.”
Ezekiel 18:32 (ESV)
