It can be a bit cumbersome to do things like this, which is why in 
1.3.5svn this has led to Paragraph Styles and Character Styles.

In 1.3.3.x, you can only apply one Paragraph style per paragraph (not 
per line). BUT, you can modify the font within that paragraph by 
highlighting it in Edit Contents mode or in Story Editor. If you apply a 
Paragraph Style to the highlighted text, the whole paragraph changes, 
but if you only change the font and its characteristics, only the 
hightlighted text is modified.
So, in summary, one Paragraph Style per paragraph, but you can edit 
character by character manually within that paragraph.
