Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] xref to indexterm

Hi Sam,
Is your intention to xref to the indexterm marker in the text, or to the
generated index entry in the index?

The stylesheets will need more than just an xref-to template for indexterm
to be able to link into an index.  Currently any id on an indexterm is used
for the inline marker that is the destination for the link *from* the index
entry.  You wouldn't  be  able to use the same id for the index entry in the
index.  Can you clarify what you expect this to do?  Maybe even file a
feature request with a complete explanation and example?  8^)
