I don't do anything "typically", with regard to
documentation, with the exception of typing. I
typically type. *g* But, if you feel that the document
could use an index, by all means include one. If these
trainees will be using the document for post-class
reference, an index may be helpful. Then again, who
uses an index, anyway? *vbg*

If you can make a case for it, do it. If you can make
a stronger case against it, don't do it. But when you
do do what you decide to do, do what you do do well.
Do be do be do.
