When I view the formatted draft as a PDF file, the PDF index includes a 
lot of junk entries.  I've attached a screenshot showing the index on 
the left.  The highlighted index entry is at the top level of the index 
tree, but it is the first word of the paragraph on the right page after 
Table 21, to the left of the image of the mouse pointer.  This looks 
like Word is deriving the index from formatting information and getting 

I hope we can clean this up.  Especially for large documents like 
standards, the PDF index is extremely valuable; I certainly can't 
imagine using, say, the C++ '89 standard, without a proper index.
