Character style formatting is retained in a generated list of paragraphs,
such as a TOC, but a generated index uses the text entered in the Marker
Text dialog box; it does not pull in text directly from the document, so
formatting applied there will not show up in the index. I don't know of any
way to apply character formatting to text in the Marker Text dialog box, so
you may be stuck with manual formatting after the index is generated.
Sorry I can't help with this one. Maybe someone else knows of a solution?
