I don't think that is exactly the code; it's invalid as it stands.
You could have <span style="color: blue"> or <span style="color: black">

Anyway, the default is black, so remove the opening "<span text="whatever">" and the matching "</span>" at the end and it should be just black.

What was happening, I think, was that they wanted to format the footnote link number blue (unnecessary to do it this way as that is the default, but it's probably automatically generated by some dumb program), and didn't notice that it made the following text blue as well; it might look OK on a colour screen. Careless coding.

I don't use Calibre editor much, but it might be difficult to remove all of those open/close spans at once, (deleting all </span> in the file would mess up other spans) but you can neuter them by replacing all the "blue" <span text="whatever"> by just <span>.

The default isn't black for links--which is what the footnote superscripts are.

He was referring to the footnote text, which is the object of the request for help in the OP.

Where I was referring to the default colour of footnote text being black.

But if you want to, you can find ambiguity in that I just said "the default" rather than "the default footnote text colour". I guess I didn't think that needed belabouring.
