Here's a mockup of how you might consider redesigning your page. The modified upper paragraph looks better in Lynx (lower paragraph is the original):

Most of the div/spans have been replace with semantic tags (p, sup, var, cite), which also improved accessibility. Crude Javascript makes the notes popup in the margin (clearly this would need to be improved for a real version).

The foot notes are listed at the bottom, and are initially invisible for CSS browsers. Ideally, they should be visible, even with CSS (at the end of the page or on another page), because you can't assume JavaScript is available. The JavaScript would take care of dynamically creating popup divs for each foot note.
