We do still claim we can do automatic indexing :-), and now
have a much improved Indexicon 1.1 for Word (and working on the
WordPerfect version). A beta version is available for testing.

LexEdit is actually a product WE developed as an add-on that has
now been integrated into Indexicon. Leverage is one of our distributors.
Contact information for Leverage is correct (thank you, Lori).
