I am in the process of completing my first (non-practice) finding aid in EAD and it includes an index.  The templates seem to include a section for index terms (looks to be primarily for name authority purposes), but this index includes locators.  I used:

- <add>
- <index>
  <head>Index of Names</head> 
- <indexentry>
  <persname>Babcock, Elisha</persname> 
    as was indicated in the Application Guidelines.  When converting to html using xt, the headings for the indexes are in the html document, but the index terms themselves are not.  Is there something that I can do to make those index terms translate from xml to html?  I use WordPerfect to create the xml document.
