First of all, if you use the *\ MergeFormat switch in the field, it
should retain whatever manual formatting you apply despite changes to
the target or updates to the field.

You might also try the *\ CharFormat switch. It's in a rather obscure
topic in the Help. This switch makes the field adopt the formatting of
the first character of the field name. For example, if you wanted your
result to be set italic, you'd italicize the first character of the
field name in the field code.
