Within minutes, email from Jane Credland arrived in my mailbox with the
solution!

Click on that thing that looks like a paragraph mark to hide hidden text.

Well, duh. Of course. All of the words marked for indexing added several
extra pages to the document. Virtual pages, that is. So the page number
in the status bar referred to the virtual page number, not the real page
number. As soon as you hide all the non-printing text, the page numbers
behave themselves, and the index matches the printed doc, and the original
of the other doc is 105 pages long just like its pdf counterpart!

(You'd think Word would be smart enough to figure this out. Ha!)

Thank you, thank you!

Ah, reality

Monday morning! ARGH!
