I've spent a good deal of today learning that--in Windows 98 with 64 MB of RAM--Acrobat Distiller (or someone) chokes before completing the second phase of converting a 1775-page Word 2000 document--Word simply stops responding and has to be "axed" by hand.

As an experiment, I removed most of the tables, which allowed the process to complete. Next, I'll probably try comverting the table-heavy document on a machine with more RAM.

I still have to see how well Sonar Bookends does on converting the finished index to hypertext, once I've got a satisfactory PDF.

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!
