To confirm: you see an entry for "GIF" in the index?

My understanding from Section 6.6.3 of the User Guide is that it should
exist and point to Image Formats as a cross reference.  However, I do not
see that and I believe Axel indicated that he didn't look for the GIF

The cross-referencing entry for GIF that I'm missing (and want to have in
my own document).
