Proposal: New Sorting Scheme with xindy


over the weekend I had some time to think about some extensions to the
sorting scheme implemented in xindy. I have written down some pages
that describe the new extended scheme, which is upwards compatible
with the old scheme.

A paper is available from our home page that describes the new
features and give examples how to sort German and French with their
rather complex sorting rules. The paper can be fetched from

I plan to release a new version of xindy soon. Any further hints on
the sorting scheme, problems not solvable with the new scheme, or
other suggestions are welcome.
