Entries and levels

All Indexes consist of a series of entries. Each entry typically contains a title and a label that identifies the position in a document at which the entry occurs. In most, but not all cases, the identifier is a page folio. In addition, each entry occupies a particular level in the Index hierarchy. The following Index fragment has three levels:

You can assign the content of any element in your source document to an Index entry. This is done on the Content tab of the mapping.

Tick the Assign to Index level box and select a level. Up to 9 levels are provided, though it is rare to use more than three or four in practice.

The content of any occurrence of the mapped element will be assigned to an Index entry, including any internal tagging which may be present. The following sections will explain how to make use of this captured material. It may be necessary to transform the content and use a custom marker to assign the index data.
