RE: page-number-citation

fo page number
I have Japanese characters on my machine, but I don't understand them.

In my source document I have 10 entries per page,
In groups of (approximately) 4.

e.g.
page 100

Alpha
    .....
Alpha
   .....
Beta
  ......
Beta
  .....





I want to make an index to that alpha only appears once in the index.
the index will show:

   index

Alpha .........................page 100
Beta ..........................page 100

I need to exclude the 'repetitions' of the names which are the same,
and which are on the same page.

Sorry if I was not clear.

I solved it by selecting the 'first' Alpha (in the example above) and
in the index, rather than all of them.
I think this is an issue that should be solved in the XSL-FO recommendation.

Regards DaveP
