[OS X TeX] Entering specially formatted items in the index

Another one of my bizarre requests:

I want to enter the metric prefixes in the index but I am using a 
special format for them that \index does not recognize as such:

    (1) \denom is defined in the preamble as follows


    (2) Then, for instance, DEKA is formatted as follows


    (3) but the following does not work


On page 874 of the Companion 2ed, there seems to be a relevant example, 
with a format defined by a \newcommand, but I don't really understand it 
and am unable to tweak it to my purpose.

Hopeful regards
