Chapter 14. Indexing > Refining and Checking an Index

Refining and Checking an Index

While creating the first draft of an index, you probably concentrated on the individual entries and their secondary entries. While editing the index, you are concerned with the index as a whole.

Editing an index might require that you create or delete entries, combine or split entries, and regroup or reword entries. In a sense, editing an index is not very different from editing the document. Namely, you verify that all necessary material is included, that it is in the intended order, and that it is error free.
