I have just done a test in both FM8 and FM9 and confirmed that format 
change lists are correctly applied even in an element that assigns a 
paragraph format. The order of the format rules in such cases is important. 
Make sure that the rule that applies the paragraph format precedes the one 
that applies the format change list--otherwise the paragraph format will 
reset all properties specified in the format change list.
