(1) Content objects. The items that the index terms describe. They
could be products, book segments, drawings. In the classic back-of-the-book
index, the objects are page numbers.
(2) Type. Static indexes
are created using separate web pages. Every time a new term is added to
the index or a new object is assigned to a term, all the affected web
pages have to be changed by hand. Dynamic indexes use a database, where
each record represents an index term and related records point to cross
references and content objects. As long as you keep the database up to
date, the web pages in the index are updated automatically.
