When extracting and merging the following docbook file:

<article xmlns='http://docbook.org/ns/docbook'>
 <simpara>Use free, open-source, Okapi Framework<footnote><simpara>A cross-platform set of components and applications designed to help your localization and translation processes</simpara></footnote> to build your own CAT tool!</simpara>
</article>

with

tikal.sh -x docbook-footnote-simpara.xml -pen leverage-test-TM -seg -nocopy -sl en -tl fr
tikal.sh -m docbook-footnote-simpara.xml.xlf -sl en -tl fr

where leverage-test-TM entries include:

    <tu>
      <tuv xml:lang="EN-US">
        <seg>Use free, open-source, Okapi Framework</seg>
      </tuv>
      <tuv xml:lang="FR-FR">
        <seg>Utilisez Okapi Framework gratuit et open source</seg>
      </tuv>
    </tu>
    <tu>
      <tuv xml:lang="EN-US">
        <seg>A cross-platform set of components and applications designed to help your localization and translation processes</seg>
      </tuv>
      <tuv xml:lang="FR-FR">
        <seg>Un ensemble multiplateforme de composants et d'applications conçus pour aider vos processus de localisation et de traduction</seg>
      </tuv>
    </tu>
    <tu>
      <tuv xml:lang="EN-US">
        <seg>to build your own CAT tool!</seg>
      </tuv>
      <tuv xml:lang="FR-FR">
        <seg>pour créer votre propre outil de CAT!</seg>
      </tuv>
    </tu>

the space after the closing </footnote> tag is missing in the merged file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<article xmlns="http://docbook.org/ns/docbook">
 <simpara>Utilisez Okapi Framework gratuit et open source<footnote><simpara>Un ensemble multiplateforme de composants et d'applications con??us pour aider vos processus de localisation et de traduction</simpara></footnote>pour créer votre propre outil de CAT!</simpara>
</article>

Note, in the original file, the part in question is <footnote> to build your own CAT tool! and the translation is </footnote>pour créer votre propre outil de CAT!.

This could just be a side effect of the fact that <footnote> is not properly implemented due to lack of support of withinText=”nested” in ITSFilter that XMLFilter depends on.
