Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] multi-column index does not work for DB5/1.73.2

Title: RE: [docbook-apps] multi-column index does not work for DB
My mistake.  I thought I was running 4.9, but it was actually 4.6.  When I use 4.9, I do not get collapsed page sequences.
However, it seems to work when I put the xep extension property on the fo:root element as follows:
<xsl:attribute-set name="root.properties">
   <xsl:attribute name="rx:merge-subsequent-page-numbers">true</xsl:attribute>
(and make sure the rx namespace is declared in your customization layer).
I looked through the XEP doc for 4.6 and 4.9 and I don't see any differences regarding this property.

I've checked XEP 4.7, 4.8, 4.9 and 4.10 - they all fail to collapse page numbers in an index.  However, Bob wrote
Regarding the XEP index features, I find in XEP versions 1.45 and 1.49 that the page sequences are collapsed.  Here are some examples from your (extended) document:

nine, 1-3
nineteen, 1-2, 4
ntwo, 1, 3-4

Bob - are you sure you checked 4.9?  Looks like the XEP error might have appeared in 4.6 or 4.7

I get non-collapsed page numbers too with XEP 4.10. Didn't this work before?
I could have sworn that it did...

problem, but with the index markup in XSL 1.1 syntax, not the XEP extension
code that DocBook XSL outputs).
