Ahh, that explains a lot. :) Yes, I've assumed you have already text
which is proberly marked up. Sorry for that.

Ok, I see. This makes it obviously more difficult. In that case, you are
hanging on step 1 whereas my method is located on step 2. ;)

Do you have text which is repeated a lot? In that case, maybe you
could split the para and search for your "expected" strings. If that's
successful you can add the needed indexterms.

Perhaps it only useful for a minority of your cases, but maybe it's
worth a try.
