Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Japanese index

Hello all,

Thanks for tracking down that package, Jirka.  I haven't tested it, but that should work with Japanese using the kimber indexing method as described in my book:


I contacted Eliot Kimber, the author of the i18n_support library for whom the "kimber" method was named.  He informed me that the original library was under the GNU Lesser GPL license, and Antenna House took it in 2008, enhanced it by paying for the building of a complete Traditional Chinese dictionary, and made it their commercial product. After that date, he made further enhancements, including locating an open source Chinese dictionary.  I have a copy of a later version, but I don't think it has that dictionary.  He says it is still under the GNU license and can be distributed.  I will compare the two versions and will eventually put a package up on the DocBook Wiki for others to use.  But for now, the Antenna House version should work.

I see. After digging some old emails I have been able to find this link:


It contains open-source part of library that should be working with
"kimber" method in the stylesheets. This could provide Jan with correct
Japanese indexing.
