Your previous message to this list bounced because of attached file.
The policy of this list is to reject messages more then 40000
characters long (this includes Base64-encoded attachments).
The stylesheets you refer to were proprietary stylesheets used by
RenderX to format XEP documentation written in a subset of Docbook.
The aim of 'index.xsl' module was to support Docbook indexes, however it
was rather experimental and we have never actually used it much. We
shipped it only with several XEP versions up to XEP 3.4.
Note that those stylesheets were not intended to be used as example
and we do not provide any guarantee that they there bugs-free nor we
support them in any form.
Starting from XEP 3.5 we completely give up use of the proprietary
stylesheets and decided to use standard Docbook stylesheets created by
Norman Walsh. This allowed us to use the full set of Docbook elements
and to avoid problems with maintaining our own set of stylesheets.
From that time on, XEP distribution contains only customization
stylesheets which are supposed to work with standard Docbook XSL
I have added an empty index element (<index/>)to the end of your
document (before </book>) in order to trigger Index generation and
processed this document with standard Docbook stylesheets - the index
was successfully generated. I'd rather suggest to switch to the
standard Docbook stylesheets. You can use your own customization layer
(as we did now) in order to achieve desired appearance. Customization
techniques are thoroughly described in Bob Stayton's excellent book
"DocBook XSL: The Complete Guide" (http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/)

SK> I've had a response to my email (not from RenderX) that says there
SK> is both too much and not enough information for anyone to work
SK> on the problem.
SK> I would be delighted to correspond with anyone who can tell me a
SK> better way to describe my problem, so that a solution can be found.
SK> Indexing is difficult, so I assume any solutions would be of general interest.
SK> My assumption has been that there is a simple syntax error in
SK> my index_xep.xsl file that a knowledgeable person would spot quickly.
SK> My hope is that since my file is based on one I downloaded from RenderX,
SK> there is someone at RenderX who understands it better than I do.
SK> We have been RenderX customers for nearly a year now and this is our
SK> first serious problem in using the product. I hope I can get some help.
SK> If anyone would like to call me rather than send email,
SK> my number is 617-577-3642.
