A NOTE ON THE DIGITAL INDEX
A link in an index entry is displayed as the section title in which that entry appears.
Because some sections have multiple index markers, it is not unusual for an entry
to have several links to the same section. Clicking on any link will take you directly
to the place in the text in which the marker appears.
