Subject: Re: [docbook] Professional Docbook indexing


I have a recommendation for the process.  It will go faster if 
whoever is creating the indexterms is set up to process the book 
and generate the index.  If you have done much indexing you know 
that a good index is made by an iterative process. The first pass 
of adding entries will have small inconsistencies in vocabulary, 
groupings, see, and see also.  The indexer has to be able to 
process the entries, review the index, and make adjustments in 
the indexterms.
