Hello,

Czech alphabet is different from the English alphabet.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czech_alphabet

The letters in the index are therefore erroneously even when the rest of the text is translated.

It could be a problem for other languages.

What do you think about it?

Thanks

I am in complete agreement with your suggestion. 

The index has always been produced by first stripping punctuation and accents from the name.  This was the the case in the original html report before is started to maintain it. 

I do not know the reason for this.  I will add on option to inhibit the stripping of accents when producing indices.

Perhaps some of our non-English users can comment on this too.  E.g should the French version have separate index entry for accented letters?

Thanks for feedback.

Not only about punctuation and accents, other is including the digraph Ch which is considered a single letter in Czech. Maybe to define of the alphabet in Dictionary.xml for each language.

Hmmm,  I somewhat naively assumed routines would be available to sort data using a given locale's collating sequence.

Javascript has a sort and compareLocale,  VBScript does not.  VBScript has SetLocale but javascript does not.

Seems like a 'Catch 22' situation  (or is that Czech Mate) !    May have to write something for this Crying
