I put this collection of articles together because I wanted to learn how to create an EPUB ebook. I have done minimal formatting and used the basic styles from Oxygen (an XML editor). I used Sigil to convert the XHTML files to EPUB format.

I have created two linked indexes, one using paragraph numbers as the text for links, and one using the main heading or subheading. I manually added ID numbers at article and section level. When the EPUB3 Indexing specification is final I am planning to create an index (to this or another work) to comply with the specification and make use of some of the new features it will allow. read more

Australian Society of Indexers Newsletter v.25 n.5 June 2001

By Roxanne Missingham

‘Website Indexing…provides a timely review of indexing principles, the challenges and history of development of web indexing, and a road test of an html index product. The combination of a narrative approach to indexing plus the demonstration of new software is appealing.’

‘It is a good read and generally well-presented.’

Internet Reference Services Quarterly v.6 n.1 2001

By David J. Bertuca, University of Buffalo, Buffalo, NY

‘This book is a clear, concise introduction to indexing publications, whether for Web or print publication. The materials are presented well and give help to beginning indexers, as well as to more experienced professionals. It is a good tool for librarians who want to index their publications well, and also for those who wish to know how the process works so that they can contract with a professional indexer and know what to expect. This publication would be valuable to librarians, Web designers, book publishers, and to anyone with a project requiring an indexing process.’ read more
