I have discovered that I am able to do just what I wanted already (in part).
I am posting the details here so that if someone is searching in the
future they will find the answer.
* SPECIFIC INSTRUCTION FOR INDEX/TABLE *
If you insert an Index/Table you will see in the entries tab a composite
line of elements -- E# for entry number, E for entry and # for page
number. Inter-dispersed in these are text entry fields to do things like
insert 'Page ' before the page number so ...1 becomes ...Page 1, etc.
In the list of allowed options there is a 'Hyperlink' button. The use of
this button is problematic and their is no help available if you select
the help button.
To create a hyperlink you need to insert a 'flag' at the start and end
of the area you want to be a hyperlink. You do this by inserting the
cursor in a text entry box at the start of the line of elements then
select the hyperlink button. Either a SL or EL element will appear
(representing start link or end link). Move to the end of the line after
the page number -- place the cursor in the text box and select the
'Hyperlink' button again. You will see in the preview that the line is
now a hyperlink.
Once saved the content menu becomes active and Ctrl-Clicking an entry
takes you to that section. A menu exists in the main menu that allows
you to return to the contents menu.
The default font for these links are blue and underlined. It is just a
matter of changing this if you would prefer the text not be so gaudy.
* WORKAROUND FOR OTHER LISTS *
The above sequence only works for content lists. all other lists (e.g.
tables, maps, etc) don't have the hyperlink option.
A work around is unckeck the 'Protect against manual changes' option on
the first tab and then save the list. You can now edit the index and
insert hyperlinks to the appropriate pages using 'insert
cross-references' or 'insert hyperlink'- NOTE HOWEVER that if the index
is updated the links will be lost.
* SUMMARY *
Ideally it would be good if the functionality available for the table of
contents was available for the other types of indexes.
