While we (I?) are on a TeX-n-Devanagari roll, Zdenek's recent adaptation of
the indexing program Xindy <http://xindy.sourceforge.net/> to the sorting
and indexing of Devanagari may not have been seen by those who don't
subscribe to the Devnag mailing list.
*xindy* is an index processor that can be used to generate book-like indexes
> for arbitrary document-preparation systems. This includes systems such as
> TeX and LaTeX, the roff-family, SGML/XML-based systems (e.g., HTML) that
> process some kind of text and generate indexing information. The kernel
> system is not fixed to any specific system, but can be configured to work
> together with such systems.
