Creating Indexes

Take a look at the index at the back of this book and ask yourself, “Would I want to create one of these by hand?” Probably not, unless you're a wonderfully patient individual who can tolerate a very tedious task. I'm not, so I use WordPerfect's Index feature to help me create indexes for my lengthy documents.

Some say a good index can make or break a reference book. I hope the index for this book has already saved you some time (and frustration). The key to a good index is anticipating the needs of the reader. You need to try to think of all the ways readers might try to look something up and then point them in the right direction.
