Well, I figured it out. 
I am indeed using the most recent version of ePublisher, and I am using
the index generated by the normal online help generation procedure.

One was something stupid I should have thought of, 
The other was a little odd and maybe cautionary. 

The missing links were links that had been conditional text, made
visible, but never un-conditioned. I should have remembered that I had
conditioned part of my own book!

The double-entry issue was weird. 
I had a heading "VASCO Integration" with two subentries.
I had another heading "VASCO integration" (small "i") with one subentry.
ePublisher duplicated the first main entry, and then combined all three
subentries under each copy of the main entry.

When I renamed integration to Integration and regenerated, I ended up
with one main entry and three subentries, as I wanted.

Thanks for the ideas!

Are you allowing WWP to generate the index based on markers or are you
forcing the generation of HTML from the IX.fm file?

You may want to post this to the WWP-Users list if you have not
already...
