welcome in the new generation :-)

you should still be warned that 1.3.5.x is still not a stable version.

what about marknig the (few) word(s) and applying the character style
from the properties palette?

you don't have to, you can!

you can define character styles or you can define the character part
of a paragraph style (which will be applied to the paragraphs which
have that style).

you can inherit a character style into a character part of a paragraph
part. so you don't have to define the style twice.

as i said: it goes the other way round (for now).
