    your command line sets Java Virtual Machine property PAGEWIDE_FOOTNOTES.
    Which obviously has no effect on XEP.

    To get the effect you need, you can either set JVM option com.renderx.xep.PAGEWIDE_FOOTNOTES
    by saying

    java -Dcom.renderx.xep.PAGEWIDE_FOOTNOTES=false com.renderx.xep.XSLDriver

    or set XEP option (that is, *after* the class name)

    java com.renderx.xep.XSLDriver -Dcom.renderx.xep.PAGEWIDE_FOOTNOTES=false

    or use the short form of XEP option (not JVM property)

    java com.renderx.xep.XSLDriver -DPAGEWIDE_FOOTNOTES=false
