After a quick perusal of this site, I'd note an important distinction: ht://Dig is a search engine, whereas HTML Indexer is an indexing tool.

With ht://Dig, you search for terms and ht://Dig returns a ranked list of links to locations where it found a "match."

With HTML Indexer, you create an index like the one you see in the back of a book, as rich as you care to make it with synonyms and other terms that needn't appear in the source material. (HTML Indexer can also format your index for use in a JavaHelp or HTML Help system.)

For more information on the advantages of a real index over a search engine for on-site information access, see the article "Why Create an Index?" at the URL below.

HTML Indexer 3, still the easiest way to create and maintain real
back-of-the-book indexes for web sites and other HTML documents.

Now including options for HTML Help and JavaHelp indexes, too!
