Robert,

In IV one can do something such as this:

% Registers (Indices)

\defineregister[TIB]

\setupregister[TIB][indicator=yes,compress=yes]

and then in the body:

\TIB[don du gner ba]{don du gñer ba : patthanā : wish}don du gñer ba'i
phyir rdzogs par byed do

\TIB[non mons]{ñon moṅs : kilesa : defilements}ñon moṅs pa śin tu che
ba yin-no


Richard

Mailer: 

I seem to have a problem with Unicode in the indexing function for my
book: a word like āyitu (beginning with an 'a' with a macron over it)
is considered a word that starts with a 'y'; the word īga (beginning
with an i with a macron) is placed as if it is 'ga'.

Is there any way to tell the indexing function how to deal with such
special characters?

Robert
