Steve, I suspect that the behavior you report is really independent of the fact that your documents are structured. A cross-reference preserves font changes that are made by applying character formats from the character catalog but does not preserve font changes that are made as untagged overrides to the source's default paragraph font. Structure is relevant only as far as the way your EDD specifies character formatting. If you have two t Lynne A. Price Text Structure Consulting, Inc.
