Re: With FOSI Technicals, how to change the order of an index

To output numeric entries after alphabetic entries in the index, you need to modify e-i-cs for final indexing markup as follows:
 
1. In the e-i-c for <ixpregrp>, code Suppress and Savetext conrule="#CONTENT".
 
2. In an e-i-c for <ixalphagrp> occur=last, code Usetext placemnt="after" to output the text variable saved in the e-i-c for <ixpregrp>.
 
Indexing is documented in Arbortext Help and also in much greater detail in my book Practical FOSI (which is available for purchase at fosiexpert.com/Practical-FOSI.html), including information on displaying final indexing markup in the Edit window. The image in Figure 137 shows final index markup in DTD order with numeric entries in <ixpregrp> followed by alphabetic entries in <ixalphagrp>.
