I keep thinking of this as a trick question, but it took me a while 
to figure out why! It's a reasonable request to have a different 
appearance for page numbers in an index. Sometimes, an italic or bold 
page number indicates an illustrated item, or the primary entry, etc.

So, why "trick?" Well, why use page numbers at all in index entries 
(or ToC entries, or cross-references) of an electronic publication, 
when clicking a link takes care of the navigation for the viewer?

If the documents are sometimes used in their electronic forms, and at 
other times in their paper versions, then perhaps it's a good idea to 
number everything for consistency.
