#580 possible error in explanation of first example of an auto-generated index


This at first appears to be a corrigible error that I should fix without reporting, but I fear that there's something I'm missing. So I'm reporting it.

In #CONOIXgen , the Guidelines say:

In the simplest case, a single headword is supplied by an term elements contained by an index element:
<p>The students understand procedures for Arabic lemmatisation <index> <term>Lemmatization, Arabic</term> </index>and are beginning to build parsers.</p>
The effect of this will be to generate an index entry for the term ‘Lemmatization’, referencing the location of the original index element.

Shouldn't that last sentence have ‘Lemmatization, Arabic’ instead of just ‘Lemmatization’?

    I think you're right, but it would rather depend on the process that was building the index; it might conceivably ignore what follows the comma. But for clarity I would amend as you suggest.

    Agreed. Seems like a corrigible bug to me, especially since later there is an example showing a nested index element. Assigning to Kevin to correct. ;-)
