Either define a command, \acuteaccentfirst say, that places an acute accent
on the first letter of its argument, then say
or just do
The latter relies on the fact that makeindex sorts by the pre-@ text, but
outputs the post-@ text.

The \sidxmarked actually writes {etude@\acuteaccentfirst{etude}} to the
.idx file.

This is found of pages 17-18 of the manual, eplain.dvi . (At least in
MiKTeX 2.1 it is.)
