The generation of indexes depends on the markups inserted in the text.
Such markups will be processed afterwards by an external
tool and will generate the index. An example of such a
tool is the
(see Section 6.2, “Inserting indexes automatically”). Details about the
process used to generate these indexes are shown in Section 6.2, “Inserting indexes automatically”.
The indexes have nesting levels. The markup of an index is done by the code Example D.3, “Code for the generation of an index”.
Example D.3. Code for the generation of an index
It is possible to refer to chapters, sections, and other
parts of the document using the attribute
Example D.4. Use of the attribute
<para>The generation of indexes depend on the inserted markups on the text.
The Example D.4, “Use of the attribute
zone” has the code used to
generate the entry of this edition on the index. In fact, since
zone is used,
the index statement could be located anywhere in the document or
even in a separate file.
However, to facilitate maintenance the entries for the index were all placed after the text to which it refers.
Example D.5. Usage of values
endofrange on the attribute
<para>Typing the text normally sometimes there's the need of
<indexterm class="startofrange" id="example-band-index">
</indexterm>mark large amounts of text.
<para>Keep inserting the paragraphs normally.
<para>Until the end of the section intended to be indexed.
<indexterm startref="example-band-index" class="endofrange">.
