Correct me if I'm wrong (needless admonition), but as I remember it, the
original poster (from somewhere across the briny deep) complained about not
being able to find things in indexes, because US indexers didn't put things
under categories that across-the-briny-deep readers would be likely to
search for them under.

I'd find examples of that situation quite helpful. ...RM
