<$pagenum> is indeed equally applicable to all index levels.
But as a post-generation step, you can use the Paragraph Designer
after generating the index. In "Level2IX", set the Angle back to
Regular and Update All, then make it Italic and Update All.
[this will have to be repeated when you regenerate the index]
