# [texhax] an Index of key-words

Hi!

I was trying to use the memoir package (to create a book) and then I was wondering how is the process to create an index of keywords (not to sections or chapters). For example, in the last pages from a book we see an index like this (in two columns) :

A

Al-Jazeera 2, 4-5, 9
Al Qaeda 1-3, 6, 11, 12, 112, 119, 130, 133

B

Biodiversity 90-1
Buddhism 13, 26, 86

and so on... can anybody help me?
by the way, the space between the two columns is very small... how can I change this? This is a piece of my code:

\usepackage{multicol}

\begin{document}

\begin{multicols}{2}

Some text here...

\end{multicols}

\end{document}

Thank you,

Alexandre.
