Hi Rob,

You can change the sort order of an index marker by specifying a sort order 
in square brackets at the end of the index marker text. For example, say 
your marker text is this

Volumes:1
Volumes:2
Volumes:10
Volumes:99
Volumes:100

Change them to this

Volumes:1[Volumes:001]
Volumes:2[Volumes:002]
Volumes:10[Volumes:010]
Volumes:99[Volumes:099]
Volumes:100[Volumes:100]

and you will get the correct sort order in your index. If you have a lot of 
markers in your document/book, you can use FrameScript to do this 
automatically for you. If you are interested in a FrameScript solution, 
contact me offlist. Thanks.
