Hello Shlomo,

That's what it was! There was a character format in front of the
<$pagenum> building block on the reference page, and it served no
purpose (applying a font that should have been specified in the
IndexIX paragraph format to start with). Now my page numbers and the
line of dots leading to the first one are clickable at last. This
feels much better, thank you very much.

However I notice that the index terms themselves are still not
clickable, which seems to indicate that the active area only expands
to the right of the hypertext marker after all -- unless I missed
something else.

Thank you again. :)
