Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Newbie trying to make htmlhelp.dsl modifications

That was very helpful. Again, I don't have the know-how to make this a
general solution, but if I put my indexterms in sects and chapters and
use parent(current-node) I get the desired result.

I have one remaining problem, and that is that I also want to have
indexterm's in term's in a variablelist. term's can have indexterm
children, but it doesn't generate an anchor in the html output. So as a
sort of separate, but related problem:

How do I set up the stylesheet to generate anchors in the html output
for term-elements?

Thank you for your invaluable help!
