I've come across what seems to be unusual behaviour when wrapping part of my structured footnote into a “footnote italics” element and I am hoping that somebody can explain to me what’s going on. The screenshot below shows the final text:

Finally, this third screenshot depicts what happens when I wrap part of the second footnote to a “footnote italics” element:
The wrapped element has a character format applied to it as specified by the EDD, but the rest of the text in the footnote element (which uses a 'footnote' paragraph format in the EDD) reverts to body text. Changing the footnote element to a footnote element corrects the formatting (and leaves the subelement in italics), nevertheless I would still like to understanding why it is happening in the first place...
