Re: index entry see also ?

2009-08-21 Thread Ian S. Worthington
FWIW I hate index entries that redirect me.  There may be an occasional
justified use (redirect me to a concept with many sub-entries) but most
redirect me to another entry to give me a page or two.  Surely this is
archaic?

Subject: index entry see also ?

 LaTeX has see for an index entry, but docbook has see and see also.
 
 Any suggestions on how to get LyX or LaTeX to support a see also style 
 index entry?
 
 I believe that \seename can be redefined, but I may want both.
 
 Something like:
 \index{BSD|seealso{Berkeley Unix}}
