    I got asterisks in my Index

    I just noticed this the other day, so I have no idea when it actually started. But I'm generating webhelp and I keep getting three asterisks as the first entry of my Index. It's linked to a topic that, at first, had no metadata. I added the metadata with no change. I've opened the help in several browsers, too. Any ideas?

    We've traced this back to topics with an empty tag.

    And there it was, lost in the body of the page. I had to do a Find in Plain Text View to locate it. Thanks!!!!!

    FYI, in this particular case the following warning should appear in the DITA OT log file when you generate output:

    DOTJ014W WARN The indexterm element does not have any content. Setting the term to ***. Please add content to the indexterm.
