Thanks for this reply. It seems I misunderstood something about it. Yes, it was about aside elements and epubtype=noteref as I did not have any other information.

Recently I had a look at an EPUB3 with some advanced features (audio files, pop-up images, these ones in conjunction with javascript are OK with Sigil 9.3) and pop-up footnotes of the above kind. To be honest, for these last ones, I am still looking for a software that could make them work (I have no IPAD).

This EPUB3 could not be properly displayed with the Calibre viewer.

This foot/endnote question has been around for quite a while and it looks like chicken and egg. On touch screens, foot/endnotes are not that much reliable, even with bigger anchors. This makes the arrival and generalization of a new generation of footnotes more desirable.

... So, we'll still wait for them to be supported with our ebook-readers. Will Sigil display them correctly soon?
