A real common cause of this bug is using value-of when you should be
using apply-templates. As a rule, you should only use value-of to
process element content when you are 100% sure it will never have
subelements, and since you can't guarantee that, the implication is that
you should never use value-of to process PCDATA content :-)

Another likely source of bugs is processing content in a different mode
in which the index processing has not been accounted for.
