Reply to: TOPLEAF: Creating a "See X" index link

We just completed the upgrade to XMetaL 7 and the new TopLeaf plugin, so I'm revisiting this. I saw the section in the guide about the see and see also entries for indexes, but can't quite figure out exactly what I need to do.

Our stylesheets currently have tags for and that simply take the content of the tags and put it into parentheses. This was our workaround for version 6.

(See also )

The guide indicates to add parameters to the index-sort element under $document, then refers to adding content for those levels, and also refers to tl:ndx-see and tl:ndex-seealso, but doesn't provide much information otherwise on how to configure it.

I'm just confused as to exactly what content I need to put where in order to get the desired effect.
