If I understand correctly, what you are saying is correct, but not accurate :-)

It's not the back of book (BOB) index that becomes the help's the Index markers in the FM document that are used to create both; the help Index when you generate help and the BOB when you generate printed.

Yes, it is spliiting hairs, but at the stage I'm at with the document I'm working on, I'm grateful I have some hairs left TO split.

I just wanted to make sure that what you WEREN'T talking about was generating the BOB Index, then including THAT set of pages as a topic...if so, I was going to ask you how you explain in the help the page numbers as taken from the BOB Index.
