I'm preparing an index for my book using inDesign and in need to italicize "see," "see under," and "see also." I thought there would be a simple way to do this in the generate index box (italicize). There is "index style" for cross-reference and cross-reference topic. Do I just apply a paragraph style there? It doesn't seem to work. Also, some of my index references need to be subsripted.
You should be able to do this with GREP styles.
So inside your INDES Style, make a GREP style. There type see, see under and see also – to be in Italic Character Style.
It's an "Index setting"!

As Grep style in paragraph style, for example:
"Wait and see"
… the kind of entry to be avoided of course! =D

You create and apply a character style in the Generate Index dialog box, then update the index.
No time to make screenshots when some make them better than me!
I’ve just shortly indicated what Barbara Binder shows in hers!
About the 2nd point, I will prefer a basic expression clearly mentioning each formula as: (CO\K2)|(CH\K4)|(N\K2(?=O)) [see screenshot]
