I'm sure that we would all agree that a well constructed
index is a cost effective part of a paper manual - in other
words, it's a great deal of hard work but worth the effort.

If the same books are delivered online, with full text retrieval
facilities, the index still has a value but I suspect the value
is much less. Anybody got any opinions on cost effectiveness?
