I don't know of any reference that applies to all nations but, 
conceptually I don't see how scattered references to XML on pages 45, 
46, 47, 48 could be represented as "XML 45pp" given the absence of an 
end point for the references.

I don't doubt that other indexing systems exist for denoting ranges that 
contain references for an index entry. I would be interested in learning 
of any widely used system that denotes a range of references with only 
the starting point of the range.

Hope you are having a great day!
