Indexing woes

Indexing a book is no fun. None at all. Yet it can be so annoying when a book has a perfunctory index that I feel compelled to try to do the job decently.

You can only work on so many pages at a stretch. Distractions are needed. One that works for me is opening up sci.logic in Google groups every so often and sounding off. Hence a rash of posts battering away at some of the dafter stuff there. Who knows if anyone appreciates it ... but it keeps me amused, and is one of the more harmless ways of wasting time on the web.

I guess the only reasonable way of creating an index is doing it on the fly, marking everything that should go into the index whilst creating the text!
