I'm not sure what eReader you're using that "clutters" up the page with visible footnotes; I don't have any that do that. No Kindles, no Nooks, no iBooks' reader and none of the Droid readers that I occasionally try/use. Where are you seeing on-page footnotes, in the main narrative, that clutters up the page, please?

All the devices that I've used and tested do exactly what the Kindles do. You have the superscripted number at the footnote location. In older/less-advanced devices, the reader taps the note, jumps to the note, reads it, taps the return link which is the superscripted number AT the footnote itself, jumps back to his last location in the text.

In the more advanced devices, the footnotes popup.

That's it.

I'm honestly not sure what you're trying to do with "nested footnotes." So, as I don't really get what you're doing or why, with those, I can't proffer a solution.

I would lastly note, don't assume that everybody has javascript-enabled devices that can do this or that--they don't. The simple link to/link back works on EVERYTHING. The aside language in Kindle is rendered so that it's the link to/back in the older devices.
