[XeTeX] Problems splitting double-columns in xetex

Hi all -
I am composing a side-by-side translation, where I wish the right column to be
in Hebrew and the left column to be the corresponding English. I found that
the eplain \doublecolumns does not work very well (I am using xetex, not
xelatex, because I want very fine control over layout).
Getting the text into nice side-by-side columns wasn't too difficult, but I'm
having two problems:
1) When breaking a too-long column (using \vsplit) I am getting some odd
residual ' characters, and I have no idea where they originate.
2) In the two-column mode I am unable to see footnotes. This puzzles me but
is probably something simple that I am overlooking.
Sample code, resultant PDF showing the problems as well as the log file are
I appreciate any assistance from the TeXperts!
