Hi Peter,

This did the trick, thanks! (I used option one, clicking into the page
margin area, and defining the style there before updating all.) I
*figured* it had to be some nitnoid little thing like this. 

Thanks again,

It IS confusing, because the designer's feedback includes all formatting
at the cursor/insertion point.

Most likely you're creating the character tag correctly, but, because
it's not applied to the selected text or to the cursor position when you
choose Update All, the feedback from the designer reverts to the
non-subscripted property.

One way to do do this with certainty is to move the cursor out of all
text by clicking into the page margin area, then choosing the character
format's tag name in the designer. Another way is to leave the cursor in
the text, and choose Commands > Set Window to As Is. After either of
these actions, set the subscript ON, and choose Update All. To verify
your work, click into margin area again and choose the character tag in
the designer.
