Examples

Figure 1. Use of an <index-see-also> element

The following code sample shows the use of an <index-see-also> element to generate a "see also" reference to the index entry for "goldfish".

<indexterm>carp
  <index-see-also>goldfish</index-see-also>
</indexterm>

This markup generates a primary index entry for "carp" and a redirection that instructs the reader to "see also goldfish".

The following code sample shows the use of an <index-see-also> element to redirect to a multilevel <indexterm> element:

  </index-see-also>
</indexterm>
