The initial proposal is to add additional field in help-index1.rdf. For example, <rdf:Description about="help-indexAZ.rdf#a"> <nc:subheadings> <rdf:Seq><rdf:li> <rdf:Description ID="Account_Settings" nc:name="Account Settings" nc:link="chrome://help/locale/mail_help.html#Account_SettingsIDX"/> </rdf:li></rdf:Seq> </nc:subheadings> </rdf:Description> We can add nc:sortkey="" after nc:name. <rdf:Description ID="Account_Settings" nc:name="Account Settings" nc:sortkey="" nc:link="chrome://help/locale/mail_help.html#Account_SettingsIDX"/> We may add one flag to indicate that the sortkey is used for sorting in the dtd file: <!ENTITY usesortkey "false"> For Japanese or Chinese, we will have pronunciation data in the field and set <!ENTITY usesortkey "true"> When usesortkey is true, we should sort nc:sortkey, not nc:name. The sortflag is still necessary in case we need to turn off sorting. <!ENTITY sortflag "true"> If sortflag is true, there is no sorting in the program.

ACCEPTING. I think we can have this in for the next release.
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
Thanks Ian. I am a bit worried that this might add additional localization costs to the project. Could you please give us some info on what additional costs we might incur due to this fix? We're on a tight l10n budget for the next release. Actually if it will add costs then we might not want it for the next release... thanks! cc. Robin

--> Brant, the RDF guy. Brant, could we get this for Firebird Help (don't resolve when fixed)?

I'm not sure how to implement this at the moment. I'm still trying to get toolbar customization to work.
This looks like moving a problem instead of fixing it. When i translated the file into Dutch i notice this behaviour: 1) Only part of what starts with 'about="help-indexAZ.rdf#*"' is inserted. 2) Everything else is sorted correctly. I'd expect the following: for every line containing 'about="help-indexAZ.rdf#*"': key = * if !key in keys keys.insert(key) # keep the list sorted key.append(item) Another benefit of inserting/sorting the 'about="help-indexAZ.rdf#*"' items this way is that it will also prevent characters that are not used filling up the list, for as it is at the moment every character in the alphabet is shown regardles of it's contents. Not that i know any Chinese or Japanese, but i'd expect you'll have to translate the help-indexAZ.rdf to create the list of sortkeys to use in help-index1.rdf. Mazzel, Martijn.
