I assume that it is interesting for non-Dutch people too. I'm writing the
texts with in my mind that I would like to see similar things for foreign
Disney comics myself.
(In other words: the site is also meant for *you*.)

I still think that the website (program) is only useful for people who do an
occasional index. People who index a LOT have better tools for doing that.

Of course, if you don't explain *what* is confusing to you, we can't make
our explanations better. I don't remember exactly how my confusing
explanation looked like, but if you have a look at the webpage:
can you tell me what it is that confuses you so much?

(Back then, I probably should have told you to ignore the "advanced tricks
and obscure points" that others posted.)
