Thanks Fred,


The <$nopage> was a feeble attempt to see if that would help. It didn't and
has since been removed.



Once I discovered the space between primary:secondary  being a problem, I
sought out my troubled markers and retyped them. I wouldn't be at all so
sure there were no carriage returns in the marker text box.



So that problem has been solved with support from this group. 



Thanks very much

It has nothing to do with the problem you're describing, but I have
to point out that conventional styling for book index entries only 
uses initial caps on proper nouns (despite the fact that all the 
example entries in the FrameMaker manual and online help use 
initial caps on main entries and no cap on subentries). This means 
your index marker would look like: 
  items;<$nopage>violation:items

Also, I'm not sure I understand why you're suppressing the page
number reference for the Items subentry under Violations. Conventionally,
the <$nopage> switch is used when you want to insert an entry or 
subentry that directs the reader to a different term in the index, 
but to do this you have to include the literal text in the marker.
If your intention is to redirect the reader from the Violation entry
to the Items entry, your index marker would look something like:
  items; <$nopage>Also see items

As to your specific problem, are you sure you never pressed Enter
(or Shift-Enter) when typing the entry?  Paragraph marks or line
feed marks in index entry markers are *death* (can actually cause
FrameMaker crashes, at least in older versions).
