Subject: Indexing Software
I'd be grateful for suggestions about indexing software. I'm currently using
the indexing features that come with WP6.1, but they have limitations. I can't
create a run-in index, for example, without a lot of keystroke editing. WP6.1
also fails to alphabetize past the first letter of words. All subheadings
beginning with "on" are thus listed in random fashion, rather than alphabetical
order. AGain, a lot of keystroke editing is called for.
The Chicago Manual of Style recommends dedicated indexing software, and it
suggests CINDEX or MACREX, but the latest edition of the Manual is 1993, and
those recommendations may be superseded by this time.
I'm using an IBM compatible PC, so Mac software isn't available to me.
Any suggestion is welcome.
