### French accents in complex indexation

Hello,

As I also write french documents, I have index entries which look like this:
\index{Equation@Équation!linéaire récurrente non homogène}
.

Thus, the problem is that these entries always index into the Symbols'' category (on the index output page in my document). How can I modify these entries so they are put in the category linked to the letter they are beginning with?

For example,
\index{Equation@Équation!linéaire récurrente non homogène}
should be put in the E'' section, and it is now put in the Symbols'' section.

Help is much appreciated.

Thanks.

Juanjo

I cannot reproduce the problem you report. The \index command you write puts the corresponding entry in the E section. Of course, if the prefix Equation@ is removed, then it goes to the symbol section. Could you provide a minimal working example showing the problem?

It works with my MWE:
\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,twoside,final,makeidx,openright]{book}%report\usepackage{makeidx}\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}\usepackage[frenchb,english]{babel} %% -- INDEX GENERATION ACTIVATION -- \makeindex %% -- INDEX GENERATION ACTIVATION --\begin{document}\index{Equation@Équation}\'Equation.\printindex \end{document}
, and I still do not understand why it does not with my other document.
