    Yes, this is how it works in XEP now. We consider table
    cells in a row to be "parallel" content, and don't establish
    any order on them. I realize that this is a counterintuitive
    behaviour; but it is really hard to impose an order.
    (A simple example: what if the first cell is long enough
    to go to the next page? You get note 1 on the next page,
    after note 2; and there is nothing you can do about it -
    until there is some sort of automatic footnote numbering).

    We will see if the things can be improved for the next version;
    however, I cannot promise an easy resolution or workaround.
    Sorry for that.

    The list limitation is 40 000 character for the entire message;
    small attachments should pass through.
