    <p>Thanks Jairo, with some tweaking I now have it working ( I had
      \placeindex instead of \placemyindex! And altered the 'style' name
      to something else as you hinted I should). <br>
    </p>
    <p>Now, this might be asking too much of ConTeXt, but some Newspaper
      names don't italicise the 'The', only the main name. Is it
      possible, do you think, to get the -> operator to work only on,
      say 'Observer' and not 'The', and for that matter not on the page
      number as well? Perhaps not, but worth asking the question anyway!</p>

            <p>I'm wondering if further progress has been made in Mk IV
              on styling parts of an index (register) entry? I have
              followed the explanation on the wiki, but do not seem to
              be able to achieve what I need.</p>
            <p>And what I need is to be able to italicise entries that
              refer to newspaper names, e.g. The Observer</p>
            <p>MWE</p>
            <p>\defineregister[myindex]<br>
              \defineprocessor[style][style=italic]</p>

            <p>The only result I am getting is:</p>
            <p>->Observer, The   223<br>
            </p>
            <p>But what I want is <i>Observer, The</i> (in other words,
              in italics).</p>
            <p>Clearly I am doing something wrong, or not enough, or...
              maybe there is another way to achieve waht I need?</p>
