I am in the later stages of preparing a book manuscript, and have
encountered a behavior in BibTeX which I don't understand.
On page 2 of the book (in the LaTeX file) is the following index entry:
\index{Newton!Principia@\textit{Principia}}
on page 129 is another
\index{Newton!Principia@\textit{Principia}!Book 1, Lemma 7}
and on page 191 another
\index{Newton!Principia@\textit{Principia}!Book 2, Lemma 2}.
I would expect these to come out, in the bibliography, as
Principia, 2
Book 1, Lemma 7, 129
Book 2, Lemma 2, 191
but instead I get
Principia
Book 1, Lemma 7, 129
Book 2, Lemma 2, 191
Principia, 2
(Note that the index entries above are verbatim: I copied them via
copy and paste from the files)
Why is BibTeX reading the subitem entries as subitems to something
different from the general reference, and what can I do about it?
