I'm new to this list, and work predominantly with Omnimark and TeX, but I
recognise a problem that I've faced before -

Furthermore, if you have any page spans in your index, e.g.

foo, 8-10

then there's no way to know if it has actually ended up as

foo, 8-8

which should be made into

foo, 8

My solution was a multiple pass operation but I certainly don't know enough
of DSSSL to know whether that is relevant.
