French accents in complex indexation

Postby latexforever » Wed May 13, 2009 6:05 pm

Hello,

As I also write french documents, I have index entries which look like this:
  1. \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,
  1. \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.

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:
  1. \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,twoside,final,makeidx,openright]{book}%report
  2. \usepackage{makeidx}
  3. \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
  4. \usepackage[frenchb,english]{babel}
  5.  
  6. %% -- INDEX GENERATION ACTIVATION --
  7.  
  8. \makeindex
  9.  
  10. %% -- INDEX GENERATION ACTIVATION --
  11. \begin{document}
  12. \index{Equation@Équation}
  13. \'Equation.
  14. \printindex
  15.  
  16. \end{document}
, and I still do not understand why it does not with my other document. :(
