I cannot afford analyzing this in detail right now, but the footnote commands must be in the second argument of \edtext=\edt, while here it ends before \B, it looks as if \B were in a third argument of \edt, but it simply is a footnote command in some braces group somewhere in the main text. You may avoid a "fatal error" dropping italicization, but I expect that something strange will happen even then, as long as you don't obey the proper syntax.
