Thanks for responding so quickly, Jack.
But, isn't the colon the standard FrameMaker subentry separator? At http://help.adobe.com/en_US/FrameMaker/8.0/help.html?content=Chap12-TOC-Indexes_19.html, docs say: _____ To create a subentry: Separate the entry from the subentry with a colon (:). For example, to create the first subentry in the illustration, enter Continental drift:fossil evidence A subentry is always preceded by the entry to which it is subordinate. If you need two subentry levels, place a colon between the subentry and the sub-subentry. For example, enter Continental drift:fossil evidence:dating of _____ How does what I'm doing differ from this? I have a whole bunch of these, and they are all failing. Could there be a problem with putting two separate entries of such construction into a single index marker? Was never a problem in 5.5.6 (last version in which I built a major index). I'm feeling VERY bewildered at the moment! :) Elchanan From: Jack DeLand [mailto:jackdel...@comcast.net] Sent: Wednesday, October 02, 2013 5:10 PM To: 'VLM TechSubs' Subject: RE: FM 8: Index marker syntax Probably misunderstands your colon.

I'm going in circles here. I have a marker of type Index with the content "America:Coinage Act of 1965". This appears in the index as a line under "America", indented to the second level (correct so far), but with only a page number, no text. I copied and pasted the marker content into the preceding line. I must be missing something, but I cannot figure out what. I have removed and recreated the marker from scratch, to no avail. Can someone see an error on my part here? Thanks, Elchanan
