Frame's search engine lets you search for specific types of markers
(index, c.f.s, TOC, etc.). You can use this to distinguish different
markers, or to jump to each marker of a certain type, even if you have
10 in a row.

If you have the Marker box open when you do the search, it displays
the marker text when you find a marker.

And if you have more than one index reference in a marker, you can
find it by searching for marker text.

The useful information you mention is readily available.

Besides, FrameMaker has a sense of humor, although I can't mention the
spellchecker joke without annoying Eric. :-)

Interleaf is the hands-down winner here, no questions asked. Frame's
problem is that index and cross reference markers:

o Are indistinquishable from eachother

o Show up as 1 marker even if you have 10 in a row.

(Yes, I know you can put more than one index reference
in a marker. But if you do, you can't determine how many
index references you've made at that location. This loses
useful information.)
