Yes, that makes sense, I'm a little behind with Cocoon, so do not have 
the knowledge to decide what goes in and what stays out.

I only really threw these in as examples. Later I realised I had not 
done an example of creating a complete FAQ document (i.e. with questions 
& answers) only of indexes (bth navigation and in document).

None daisy users should be aware that the query system in Daisy is 
superb and very flexible. If folk want something better than is 
currently in place then just ask how (or do it).
