Agree, a good indexer would certainly have included "watermark." OTOH,
you could have met them half-way and found what you needed. In the
index, there are entries for:

-- background graphics on master pages
-- graphics:background, on master pages 

So on the index tab, just typing the term you used to _describe_ a
watermark -- "background" -- will get you there. A search for background
graphic works, too.

Indexers should try to think of appropriate synonyms. But so should
index users.
