For those interested, there is a possible FrameScript solution that would
solve the problem in PDFs. A script could go through the TOC and look for
lines with character property changes. It would duplicate the first
Hypertext marker and insert it whereever there is a character property
change. The end result would be multiple links in the paragraph, but since
they would butt together, it wouldn't be a problem in the resulting PDF. The
script could be triggered automatically whenever the TOC is generated.
