Using a simple alphabetic list is definitely a good idea at
the volume we have.

Some comments on details:
- Having symbols (especially the colon) as index headers
  might confuse people. Please make sure the entry also
  appears without the leading symbol (e.g. @charset also
  under 'c')
- An entry such as "character escapes" appears under
  'c', but not under 'e'. It would be good if it also did
  appear under 'e'. Do you have any kind of policy for this?

Regards,   Martin.
