Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] About index and symbols in french

Hi Jacques,
You have a couple of options.  If you are using version 1.70.1 of the 
stylesheets, you can switch to index.method="kosek".  You will need to use 
Saxon or Xalan, and you will need to xsl:import the common/autoidx-ng.xsl 
stylesheet module into your customization layer.

If you upgrade to version 1.71.0 of the stylesheets, then the default index 
settings will work with French.

Just to clarify, the index.method parameter defines a method of processing 
the index, not the language.  The 'english' index.method really should have 
been named 'english.only', as it does not handle accented characters. There 
is no 'french' method.    In version 1.71.0, the 'english' value was 
dropped, and the default index.method has been changed to 'basic'. Now it 
handles most European accented characters, although you do have more 
control to configure grouping with the kosek method.

Subject: [docbook-apps] About index and symbols in french

Hello list,

I have a little problem with generated index and the symbols section in
this index.

In my xml document I've put some indexterm , like this :


And in the generated index, in my PDF the result is :

…lodie, 5

But the … (caps E with accent if you don't see it) is not a symbol in
french. It must be include in the E section.

How can I have a correct french index ? I've try to change the saxon
parameter  index.method frm 'english' to 'french'put it doesn't change

Thanks in advance,
