I'm having a really hard time trying to figure out how to use the change/format what the Kindle displays in the index of a dictionary.
This is what I would like to achieve: for a given headword, when searching in the index, display 'headword [phonetic reading]'.
<idx:entry name="word" scriptable="yes">
<idx:orth format="orth 【あたま】">頭</idx:orth>; <idx:orth>首 【あたま】</idx:orth>
【あたま; かしら; かぶり; こうべ; ず; つむり; つぶり; つむ; かぶ】
(noun) (1) head; (2) mind; brain; intellect; (3) top; (4) hair (on one's head); (5) bangs; fringe; (6) top structural component of a kanji
The format doesn't seem to be used at all. All I get displayed in the index is the value between the <idx
I've read the mobi documentation at http://www.mobipocket.com/dev/articl...e=indexing.htm
have tried using single quotes and idx:string but nothing seems to work.
Any help or suggestions is greealty appreciated!
