The limit index X(x) of a point x in a compact metric space is defined. (Roughly: Isolated points have index 0, limit points have index 1, limit points of limit points have index 2, and so forth.) Then the following theorem is proved. Theorem 1. Let E be a compact, totally disconnected metric space. Then the uniform closure of the set of homeomorphisms of E into itself is the set C^ of continuous functions ¡from E to E satisfying
