[SOLVED] Something lost with the new footnote display

Though I rather like the new site, there is a small problem with the new footnote system.

For some reason the notes are sometimes not displayed at the bottom anymore. On some pages they are, on some they aren't. Whether that is a feature or a bug is not really my concern, tooltips are good enough for me.
Trouble is, the links in the notes (typically to wiki entries or other lyrics) are neither accessable anymore, since you can't click them from the tooltips.

Could that be fixed, either by squashing the bug, allowing hyperlinks in tooltips or restoring the old display method?

“Раз пошла такая пьянка…” Wink smile Using this good opportunity I’d like to request the possibility of placing footnotes’ text somewhere else beside inline in the text. Either somewhere else in the text or in author’s comments will do. The current system with inline footnotes doesn’t allow text side by side with each line aligned with its translation. I usually translate offline in a MS Word document and then paste the result here, thus the problem.
Something like “[ fnd:# ]This the text of footnote number#.[ /fnd ]” somewhere and “[ fnr:# ]” for reference of this footnote will do. However the syntax is unimportant as long as the reference is short.
I understand that currently there are bugs to fix, so it’s for the future.

Thanks for reporting!
Please provide some examples of pages with footnotes not displaying correctly.

Examples of mine:

http://lyricstranslate.com/en/stvalentine-como-san-valent%C3%ADn.html
http://lyricstranslate.com/en/el-incendio-de-salonica-fire-salonika.html

Where it says [Reference], there should be Wiki links.

On these pages the problem with links is in the slash here />Referencia. This slash is not required.

Sorry but this one is still broken, apparently :

I did not keep track of all the problematic pages, but I sampled around this one and could not find another occurence of the bug.

Fixed, thanks. The problem was in an open <em> tag. Now the script tries to fix the incorrect HTML.

We will try to implement this after the primary tasks, thank you.
