Re: [docbook] HTML links not being created in my indexes
I have no customizations at all. I'm using the sheets from
docbook-xsl-1.65.1. I have
also tried 1.61.3-51 with the same results.
I just have a couple test indexterms, but I am thinking that they must
be done correctly
since the index gets created perfectly for those entries for PDF.
Below is the exact HTMLl output. Would you like to see the details of
and processing setup, relevant DocBook markup, and/or PDF output?
I'm going to throw HTML comment delimiters around this, in an attempt to
email clients from processing the HTML:

I'm not sure I understand what you are seeing in your index. I presume you
have a valid DocBook document that contains <indexterm> elements and an
empty <index/> element somewhere near the end. When you process the
document for HTML, you get an index that has the letter divisions, as well
as alphabetized index entries, but none of the entries are followed by a
hyperlink to the section name? If that is what you are seeing, then that is
certainly unexpected behavior.
Are you using a customization layer? Do you get the same results with the

Subject: [docbook] HTML links not being created in my indexes
My index works great for fo. My PDF document page numbers show up as
for the index entries. However, for chunk and non-chunk HTML, no
target of any kind shows up, where I want to see HTML links.
I could probably get this working by modifying the style sheets, but,
since I see
DocBook documents on the web with hyperlinks in the index, I think that
I'm just not doing something right.
I'm in a crunch trying to get the Hsqldb docs finished before publish
the new version.
Another problem I have is, email addresses of authors/editors usually do
produce a mailto: link. I think it worked when I had a single editor
entire book, but does not work for editors for the entire book nor for
for individual chapters. Anybody know what the criteria are for when
links are generated for HTML?
