To have the entire TOC paragraph active (including its page number), avoid
character formatting in TOC items on the Reference page TOC specification
(eg, H1TOC should be blue and/or the same font/size throughout.)
However, the problem may still be encountered when source TOC items
retrieved have character properties such as subscript, superscript or font
changes -- some examples can be found at
If character formats in the TOC cannot be avoided (either retrieved from
source paragraphs or required by design), I recommend using FrameScript to
duplicate the hypertext marker present at the beginning of each TOC entry
for each distinct character format area within that entry (independently of
whether this property change comes from the TOC specification on the
Reference page or from the source TOC item).
Such a script can also be extended to deal with other TOC problems.
