I figured as much. I wasn't able to find that fine print anywhere; maybe
my eyesight is failing! :)

I'll live with it. I prefer to base my files, including the generated
ones, on standard templates. If somebody really complains, I can
customize the index.

Thanks for the quick response, Art.

Subject: Re: Dictionary Headers Issue in Index

I imagine that when you set up the headers, you set up all your master
pages, or at least the left AND right, to use the dictionary headers.
I think if you read the fine print on this setup, you'll see that the
variables in the headers map to the last entry on the page. But if there
is no entry, as in your case, the variable isn't reset and so displays
the contents with which it was last loaded (the header on the previous
page).

So the short answer is that everything is working. It just isn't working
the way you want it to. ;- )  Either live with it (my choice), add
enough idex markers to spill to a second page (I hope that's a REALLY
short book), or twiddle your master pages to have an empty left page
header, either by creating a new left master page or deleting the
variable from the one you use. In all honesty, for a one-page index,
dictionary headers are kinda cute but useless.

Cheers,
Art
