I don't see a problem with that.
Okay, thanks. I didn't know what
So. I exported my files from LyX to PDFLaTeX to be able to check the .idx file. I now have a PDF of my dissertation with a correct index, but I'm not sure what happened.
First the compilation with TeXworks didn't put the bibliography or the index in the output document at all. I then noted that when all the bibliographic references were replaced with "?", the page numbers in the original index were exactly right. I then tried, in TeXworks, to run BibTeX and MakeIndex manually before I ran PDFLaTeX (because I basically have no idea what I'm doing). I did this a couple of time, I think, before suddenly the rendered document had the right page numbers in the index. Alchemy!
But I have a correct PDF now, and I wouldn't if you hadn't given me some feedback and directions, thanks a ton! If you can understand what happened in LyX (where the index was as if there were no bibliographic references, but those references were nevertheless in the rendered document) then I would be curious to hear it.
