A slight correction to Steve's statement: "<$paratext> means just that - the text of the source paragraph, and only the text."
This is not true in all contexts. For example the <$paratext> building block in generated lists does honor any character formats applied within the paragraph text. In my opinion, what Carol is experiencing is an annoying, long-time FrameMaker bug. I think this is underscored by the fact that if the character format uses a different font family, the styling WILL be carried over. Unfortunately, from my experience, it is not Adobe's policy to fix long-standing bugs like this.
