    RenderX uses XSL FO's areas to implement page ranges, however, the approach
    compatible with DocBook is also possible. DocBook's approach is directly mappable
    to the internal structures for page indices.

    A short digest that summarizes the syntax of indices in DocBook and common practices
    of their use would be helpful for us as a guide.
