The beginning of this sentence should be changed to something like

   If your display supports multiple fonts, colors, or underlining, ...

And this sentence should also mention multiple fonts.

I suggest to drop "creating" from the last index entry.  It doesn't
add any useful information, while making the index entry longer.
Also, an index entry that starts with "multiple" stands a better
chance being useful with the `i' command, since a user who looks for
this information is more likely to type "i multiple TAB" than "i
creating TAB".  In general, starting an index entry with a word that
is too general is not a good idea, for this very reason.
