I'm wondering what people's favourite add-on indexing tools are - not
the tools that come in FrameMaker, for example, but external products
that one could use on either FrameMaker or Word documents.

For Framemaker, the widely recognized favorite is ixGen from Frank Stearns Associates.

For Word, there's a new tool, called DEXter, available from The Editorium.

Macrex, Cindex, and SkyIndexing are the big dedicated standalone indexing tools. They provide all the bells and whistles needed by professional indexers, but they're very expensive, and they're not for embedding index entries in source files.

You can read all about this stuff on the web site of the American Society of Indexers (
