Indexing is one of my blind spots in the LaTeX world.
Does anyone know the current best practise here? Did Xindy ever get
anywhere or is makeindex still the tool to use?
And is there a "glossaries" type package for index creation?
(I.e., I know glossaries.sty is the go-to for that sort of thing;
wondering if there's an analogue for indices.)
