Dick, from my (possibly faulty) interpretation of what you just
said, I think you and Lori are doing the same thing. I think
when she "indexs Table of Figure entries," that means she
includes those entries in her master index--I don't interpret
that as having a *separate* index for figures.

OTOH, a separate List of Figures is often used following the
Table of Contents. This would be in addition to, not instead of,
including figure references in the index.
