When we place cross references inside footnotes, we use the following markers:
\f + \fr 9:1 \ft This is an example footnote. Take a look at \+xt Mat 1:2\+xt* .\f*
The plus sign in
\+xt is required because
\ft is a character-level marker, so nested markers have to be prefixed with
+. (At USFM 3.0 documentation, go to Docs » Words and Characters » Character Marker Nesting.)
I can create a regex rule to get rid of those plus signs, but I would imagine that the developers would also want to fix the bug so SAB respects standard markup in situations like this.
