Thanks, Ron.  That's the point: the text already exists, and the
original bulk of it (not my responsibility then) I converted from html
to DB, so no index markup.  I have to go through it and add DB index
markup.  I'm doing what you suggest but more auto via a Perl script--a
rough cut to be sure but it should save some effort.
