It's not that hard to do if you have character styles. In the marker text,
put the name of the character style in angle brackets <> where you want to
apply it, then add <Default Para Font> at the end. Like this, assuming you
have a style called Custom Italics:

initial marker text <Custom Italics>text to italicize<Default Para Font>,
and the rest of the marker text
