Hello Hans, I'd like to remind the 2 persisting problems with the index sorting. 1. Numbers are sorted under A 2. Symbols are sorted under the first letter which follows. See the attached test file. Both these issues are independent on language and on the expansion type. Proposed solution: 1. Sort numbers into separate divisions 2. Sort symbols to a special division called "Symbols" Could you please look into it? May I help you any further (except the attached test file)? Many thanx, Richard

For example, the DocBook XSLT stylesheets (http://docbook.sourceforge.net/) solve it this way: Symbols (anything unsortable, including numbers) A B ... Z  I'd suggest a bit better way: Symbols 1 2 ... 9 A B ...

But why 10 bins for numbers? Mojca
I'd consider it more trasparent... But, anyway, Hans has already fixed this problem and he has made it the first way (i.e. symbols including numbers in one group and then the letters). I guess it's OK and consistent with the DocBook XSLT stylesheets which I use for the HTML output.
