Rather than post two responses, I'll just toss a couple of thoughts in regarding the two index-related questions asked on the list.
First, for the phantom index entries... I've seen this sort of thing happen when Index marker content is malformed. One example occurs when additional sorting (the [ ] blocks) in Index markers aren't placed at the end of the entries. Additional content after the [ ] block creates a spurious entry that appears at the beginning of the index. Check for this if you're using customized sorting. Second, for the master index... Check the documentation for Index Tools Professional. There's a full description of the process to create and generate a master index. The issues regarding numbering, pagination, and PDF generation are all covered. Index Tools Pro also has a utility to help with the index creation. It's important that this be done carefully, or everything in your source files will renumber, which you don't want. You can also get into situations where you're hounded with "inconsistent numbering" messages for many files in each of your Frame books. You want to avoid those problems if possible.
