Dear Framies: Why I need to export via WordPerfect is that WordPerfect allows for a concordance file for indexing. Thus one can use a huge concordance (no word limit) carefully created per subject. This is a huge saving of time especially for long documents and manuals. I call it machine indexing as the input in time is zero.
WordPerfect then goes through the document and indexes the whole document according to the concordance, in addition to the "hard" index marks one might have made. The generated combination index is flawless and hyperlinked. RTF does not respect these "soft" concordances index marks so I am cutting WP and pasting into FM until someone tells me the Framemaker filters are working as advertised.
