OK.  As long as I'm not the only one who is experiencing the problem.

This is likely more time consuming than my schedule allows.

I'm running on an OS without sypport for Word and don't really want to
introduce another OS into the process. 

While neither of the methods you suggested will work for me, I do
thank you for posting the information and the necessary scripts.

I guess I need to take a more comprehensive look at the type of index
entries I need to create.  If I can avoid using ranges, I may be set
with the default DSSSL stylesheets.  If I do need ranges, I'll have to
figure out about modifying the stylesheets, or using other stylesheets.

Thanks again,
