epub to mobi conversion changes footnote anchor location

Hey all, long time viewer, first time poster (cuz I couldn't find the answer). There were 2 other threads with similar issues, but not this specific one.

Have an epub file created with the latest version of Sigil. Passes FlightCrew w/ no errors.

Upon converting to mobi via calibre, all but 4 footnotes work perfectly. For those 4- the hyperlink from within the body to the footnote works. The hyperlink from the footnote back to the body does not. It links to a spot further down the in the body.

Footnotes that are not working are 113, 136, 163, and 199. I have attached the mobi and epub files.

Any help to get these sorted out would be greatly appreciated.

The problem is that you have the id links in different places. For footnote 112 you have
Code:
<a id="ref_n112"></a><a href="#ref_112"><sup>112</sup></a>
for footnote 113 you have
Code:
<span class="MsoFootnoteReference"><a href="#ref_113">113</a></span><a id="ref_n113"></a>
The difference between the sup tag and the span is unimportant (except from a styling point of view - there's no guarantee that these footnotes will look the same). The important difference is that the link anchor is after the footnote. Personally, I'd go for a combined link/href like this:
Code:
<a id="ref_n112" href="#ref_112"><sup>112</sup></a>
but there's no real need to change all of them - just the ones where you have the id link in the wrong place.
