In the original, they don't quite work properly.  I've suspended work on 
the Brenton Septuagint module until we have a fix.  The footnotes and 
xrefs don't currently nest properly.  They were not too bad in the 
original script, but when work stopped on the earlier (Perl?) version, 
and the newer (Python?) version - or was it the other way round? - some 
of the conversions I tried to do resulted in a complete mess with 
complex footnotes.  I know the USFM was valid and looks OK on Michael 
Johnson's site (where I have been uploading the modules.

My problem now, is that unless I put in a lot more time revisiting the 
earlier work (because I have forgotten exactly what the problems were) I 
can't give a detailed explanation.  I had a go at trying to see where 
the problem was, but gave up and decided that regular expressions are 
totally beyond me.

God bless,		Barry.
