I'm having some problems with indexing a book. Most of the links
back to indexterm tags work just fine. The exception are
indexterm tags that appear within a title element, all of which fail.
It looks like the style sheets aren't passing the ID into TeX in
those cases. Any thoughts?

    Actually, it's far worse than that. There are actually three distinct places
    where IDs are not being mapped from XML IDs to TeX labels:

    1. A title tag with an "id" attribute (i.e. <title id="blah">)

    2. An indexterm tag (with id) nested in a title tag (i.e. <title><indexterm
    id="blah">)

    3. An indexterm tag (with id) nested in an entry tag (i.e. <entry><
    indexterm id="blah">)

    I've gone through and nuked the customization layer to make sure that
    the Mandrake changes (many of which have huge index-related bugs)
    were not causing this, and the problem still occurs with a nearly empty
    customization layer.

    Apparently SF has a bug in their bug tracking system. Specifically,
    when you submit a bug, it takes you back to the list of currently open
    bugs. If you go to another page, then hit the back button, MSIE re-
    requests that list of bugs, and in the process, resubmits the previous
    bug report. Blech, blech, and triple blech. Apologies for the noise.
