No Greek, nor footnote number formatting

Footnote formatting is crucial for electronic editions of Gibbon. This may be the least bad approach, with the footnotes in the general vicinity of the text, but the numbers themselves are hard to detect, and they don't link. (At least they're footnotes; some publishers substitute endnotes, presumably assuming you won't read them.)
A reviewer for another platform says that Delphi, like pre-2022 Gutenberg, simply omits Gibbon’s Greek text. A failed search for ”α“ in the sample suggests the horrifying prospect that Delphi (previously my favorite electronic publisher) actually did this.
