Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] search engine with docbook
I've posted the webhelp for docbook thing here: http://www.thingbag.net/docbook/docbook-webhelp/index.html This should provide the original poster with enough to get started for generating webhelp-like output from DocBook and could be used pretty much as-is.
As I mention in that link, the support for Asian languages is limited due to the fact that the indexer depends on spaces and punctuation to identify words. Since Japanese lacks spaces between words and has little punctuation, I've customized the xsls to add indexterms to the list of keywords. So if you use copious keywords and indexterms, at lest some searchs will return at least results for Japanese content. Perhaps this is good enough for some people.
