RE: Conditional Text and cross-references

Huh.  I thought this was on the "expert" test, under "how to hack FM".
I've been using that for years to tweak kearning/tracking.

OTOH, I've never figured out how to get embedded formatting to work for
generated marker lists.
      Marker Type: ChangedContent
      Marker Text: <B>Heading\:<Default Para Font>note on what changed.
Generating a List of markers always treats the marker Text as text, 
while generating an Index of markers reads the formatting and applies
