Antenna House I18N Index Library is a Java library that makes index pages in the various languages used by DocBook, DITA to XSL-FO stylesheet.
I18n Index Library accepts indexterm data from XSLT stylesheet and sorts them according to the document language. The sorted results are converted into appropriate XSL-FO format by stylesheet.
For example the Chinese word “粘贴” belongs to “N” index group because the most common reading of “粘” is “nian2”. However the correct reading is “zhan1” for this word.
You can correct this problem by specifying the correct reading (pinyin) to the sortas attribute value. The fix will place “粘贴” into the “Z” index group.
<indexterm><primary sortas="zhan1 tie1">粘贴</primary></indexterm>
