@Planet, I am sort of doing that.
What I had:
A-B on home page, alpahbetic index broken into sections (e.g. D-H, I-O) each with its own page. Each had a snippet of explanatory text, all wrapped in a <DL>. Each page was linked to in the navigation. The navigation also linked to a categories page, that listed categories ordered by subject.
What I now have.
Categories plus a few other links on the home page.
An "alphabetic index" link in the navigation.
Alphabetic index pages have extra navigation linking to each other.
What has not changed:
Lots of in-content internal links
link to category (occasionally categories) at the bottom of each page.
