>From the Zope book:

     Searches text. Use this kind of index when you want a full-text search.
     Searches objects for specific values. Use this kind of index when you
want to search date objects, numbers, or specific strings.
     Searches collections of specific values. This index is like a
FieldIndex, but it allows you to search collections rather than single

I don't see your problems at this time. Every index has its special purpose.
If you need more help provide some informations about the things you
are trying to index.
