If there is no character formatting present in the index, differentiating 
the page number from the index term, the hypertext marker present in front 
of the first page number extends its active area on both sides of the 
marker: to the beginning of the paragraph (including the index term), and 
to the end of the paragraph or the beginning of the next hypertext marker 
(when there are two entries). The link defined for the index term is the 
same as the first entry.

Character formatting present in the reference page (IX flow) or in the 
index entries themselves (through the source marker) will interfere with 
this default behavior and will limit the active area to the page number only.
