thanks. seems to work fine. except that the package
manual nomencl.dvi says ``redefine \nompreamble if u
want to explain something between the title of the
nomenclature and the start of the list''. it is not
clear what this means. i tried
\renewcommand{\nompreamble}{} leaving the blank in the
second set of braces and typed \nompreamble{this}. the
output ``this'' appears on the previous page but not
after the ``List of Terms'' (this is my definition of
\nomname) and the start of the list. i want ``List of
Terms'' , then next line `this list ..' and then the
2column list should start.
Similar things are likely to be needed in an index. i
have seen the index of the latex companion which
starts with some text between ``index'' and the start
of the sorted index list.
grateful for help on this.
