Bob, you've answered your own question. If the online index
is created with hypertext links, it's missing a lot.
Concepts that are not spelled out explicitly in the text are
not indexed. A manual index is likely created by a human
indexer, and would pick up those missing concepts. That's
why the manual index is far superior!


I think you missed Bob's point. When Frame generates your manual index (based
on index entries inserted by a human indexer), it also generates hypertext
links to the indexed material automatically. If you use FrameViewer or
HyperHelp as you viewer, your online index is identical to your manual index,
with the added benefit of hypertext links directly to the indexed material.
