Technical Writers’ Companion

Most help authoring tools create a well-designed index automatically.

If you create a compiled help format, usually there aren’t any customization options.

If you create browser-based help (plain HTML), the only thing that you usually need to do is to customize fonts and colors.

The key elements of the index area are:

a search box where users can enter the first letters of the term to search for; alternatively, a list of letters with links that take users to the places where the index entries for each letter start

subheadings for each letter
