That's the weakness IMHO. Ok, then maybe the answer is to just always use the numbers: Term, in section title, , in other section title, , , in third section title, , , , in fourth title  The section titles give the reader a clue about where the links occur, the numbers link to the actual spot where the indexterm occurs. Or maybe I should just get over it and go with simple numbers like the CSS example :-/ Be seeing you, norm -- Norman Walsh <email@example.com> | Some people can stay longer in an http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/ | hour than others can in a week Chair, DocBook Technical Committee |
