I use a tool called IXGEN that has three features in particular that are
very useful to me:
-I can generate an editable index file. When I make changes in that
file, IXGEN updates the markers in my frame files.
-I can generate index entries from paragraph tags I specify.
-I can generate index entries from keywords I specify.

A big time-saver.
