Hi, all...

Would like some advice on using the standard index-processing FO objects for generating a back-of-book index when all page numbers in our books are formatted like this: <chapter>-<page>. For example, page 3-12, page 5-2.

I'm talking about using the markup <fo:index-page-citation-list>, <fo:index-key-reference>, and so on.

Antenna House is properly generating the page numbers in the PDF without the chapter number prefix, and now I want to modify the stylesheets to output properly formatted page #s in the index. Example:

tables, creating 2-12, 4-3, 5-3 -- 5-6 (The -- is an N-dash)

Has anyone attempted this? Can you provide direction?

The solution is provided through the use of <fo:folio-prefix> under page-sequence.

I hope this helps.
