These pages index which characters, etc., appear in what episodes/pages in the comics. The index pages are updated every few days.
Cookies: we don’t use no stinkin’ cookies. For information on controlling or deleting cookies generally see AboutCookies.org.

On the left, the Index column is the list of tags, each highlighted in a coloured blob, with number of occurrences in [ ] and perhaps a short explanatory text if someone has got round to it. Click on a tag blob to show only the pages with that tag.
On the right, in the Pages column, each page of the comic is listed, with a link to the actual comic page, some descriptive text – a page title or a line from the dialogue – and tags for the characters and other points of interest on that comic page (see What’s Tagged). Click on a tag blob to show only pages with that tag.
The general idea is to help you find a particular page or set of pages in the comic when you can only recall who was involved, not the actual page url.
To show the page entries with a particular character click or tap any instance of that character’s tag either in the tag list or any individual page entry. Pages not having that tag will be hidden.
Click another character’s tag to show the pages with both of them appearing. Some combinations won’t have occurred so the page list may be empty.
Click a selected tag a second time to de-select it. That will show pages with all the remaining tags, or all pages if that was the last selected tag.
There’s a Clear All button (tag) at the top of the Pages column that de-selects (almost) everything.
At the top of the Index column there are a couple of filters to help:
If you are on a slow connection (e.g. on a bus in a reception greyspot in the wilds of Scotland…) wait for the page to load fully before filtering, clicking tags, etc.
Cosmetic issue: Clear All does not clear the selection in the tags starting with filter, though it does clear the filter. Click the highlighted letter to de-select it.

What is tagged has evolved from the original characters seen on pages concept, which should be complete, to include places, things and other detail which will be in different states of completeness depending when in an index page’s life I decided to start adding a particular tag and whether I’ve had time to backfill. See Progress.
Current tagging plan:
(but note that no plan survives contact with the enemy…)
The key parts of the index system are on GitHub: the text source index files, the tags lists and the script that ties them together into web page parts. These are committed every week or two so are a little behind the live pages.
To link to an index entry for a tagged character, item, place, etc., use the tag name in lower case. So to link Ash’s car, tagged as XR4Ti use
