NOTE:
The DokuWiki Subject Index Plugin https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:subjectindex automatically compiles a Book style Index from tags inserted in the wiki pages. Each Index link will open the wiki page near the position of the tag. That tag can be invisible, or can be visible with any associated text (such as See Index for related topics and optional asterisk ), which when clicked will return to this Index page near the associated topic.
e.g. Each page listed against the 'Printing Focus Window' heading has a tag such as {{entry>Printing/Focus Window;-*}} inserted by hand.
