In the context of FrameMaker, I heartily endorse IXgen, by FSA (Frank Stearns Associates): It is a plug-in that enables you to both:

* quickly generate initial index items from paragraphs of a user-selected set of tags (such as Head1, Head2, Table, ...)

* easily gather all index entries of a chapter or book into a single FrameMaker table (sorted alphabetically), edit the entries in the table, and restore them to their markers with a few keystrokes.

It's a godsend.
