ePub: The Death Of The Index?

Screensnap from the Appendix of an ePub eBook borrowed from the New York Public Library. This is not the first one to have a worthless Index. But it is the first one to offer such an insulting suggestion!

This is unacceptable.

One more nail in the coffin of the Axis of E.

Couldn't agree more. Any publisher working on ebook development must start producing smart embedded indexes "pre-press" (what's the equaivalent e-term?). We're doing that on over 150 academic books a year (shameless plug for our superior project management service!)
