Re: [O] LaTex Output with Index

With your instructions I can now generate a document with an index.  Thanks.

However, I have one hitch.   How do I generate an index with an entry that has 
an address@hidden symbol in it?

For example

#+index: @ terms

I’ve tried \@ and address@hidden and several other ideas but once there is an @ 
sign, no entry shows up.  If I have “terms” instead of “@ terms” it works fine. 
The @ sign shows up OK in the body of the document, just not in an index.

Any suggestions?
