Yes, have them also here, and as you found out these appear to be
generated by the N() and T() functions as the indexer picked up

To prevent #2 and #3 it should suffice to check "Match case" and "Word
only" in the Edit Concordance File dialog. You have to check every
single entry, but luckily the *.sdi file is a semicolon separated text
file and doing s/[01];[01]$/1;1/ fixes that, I'm attaching the result.
However, unfortunately that seems to be ignored in the current OOo
version I tried, maybe Patrick has more luck with that.

This is the same as with the table of contents, we have to regenerate
that in a version where annotations and test cases are removed.

I guess the only way to have a clean index is to manually (or maybe per
XSLT) mark the function headers to be indexed.

If using the case significant words only concordance file doesn't fix
these issues then please don't continue with the index at the moment and
remove it for the next upload. I think we then should drop that approach
for CD3 and maybe find a solution for the final version. I'm not sure if
an index is normative material, but I don't think so, then adding an
index shouldn't be a problem.

Btw, how did you initially create the concordance file?


Automatic string conversions considered dangerous. They are the GOTO statements
