I've been busy writing a paper due tomorrow.

I agree with you that a "page"
is an ill defined notion in xml/html.
That the target page of the index page (not the index page itself)
has multiple nearby entries is no issue to me.

With the multiple references to the target page,
it is nice to be pointing near the particular reference.
But, since there no way, from the index entries,
to tell which is the most appropriate reference,
I don't much see need for more than one entry.

But that just my view and given that the current
index was essentially hand generated I don't
intend to go further in that direction for the moment.

Rather I'm starting to look at something that has
no index at all, that is, bookvol5.pamphlet.

Further thoughts?

Since I haven't heard from you I set out to address your
concern about eq? appearing multiple times on the same page.

I have looked at the book-index file and I think that Arthur's
original version is reasonable. The notion of a "page" in html
based documentation isn't clearly defined. The fact that some
of the references point to adjacent items is a non-issue since
the user would not notice that fact.
