How to insert a subscript building block in an index marker in framemaker

Hi,

I need to create an index marker using H2O2, but the 2s need to be in subscript (H2O2 is hydrogen peroxide).

I wonder how to preserve the subscript attribute in the index (I did it here using the HTML editor of this forum).

I tried to put this in my index marker text to refer users to "hydrogen peroxide":

"H2O2, <Emphasis>see </>hydrogen peroxide<$nopage>"

How can I make sure the "2s" stay in subscript in the index?

I use FrameMaker 12.0.4.445, unstructured.

Regards.

Best bet is to use [₂], an inherently subscripted Unicode "2" \u2082

Theoretically, if you implemented the sub2 as a Character Format in the body files, and that tag also exists in the IX, it will be honored, and this is probably OK for an IX. It's a bad idea for other generated lists, like TOC, because the hypertext gets broken at any Character tag boundary.
