I would like to ensure that my index is useful. I can figure out how
to do simple things, like ensure that use terms consistently (and as
correctly as one can without actually knowing the audience in real,
personal terms... not being a drinker and all... that was a joke).
I can test things like, do the links work. I can test things like
spelling, consistency, and so on. And I have an absolutely wonderful
editor, a true gem. (Actually, I have two, a wealth of editors.)
The thing is, is the index any good?
