Hypertext activity can be suppressed for the entire index (not 
recommended), but not for specific markers. <$nopage> indeed creates a 
link, even though the page number is not present.

It it possible to develop a "workaround" where the addition of a character 
format to the See/See Also index markers will serve to limit the link 
active area (making it very small).

But I recommend using different approach. See 
http://www.sundorne.com/FrameMaker/IndexRef/indexref.htm for information 
about a plug-in that helps fix the links created by See/See Also 
references, so that they point to the appropriate terms within the index 
(through cross-references) rather than to the source markers.
