Ok, maybe it about time, I look at the HTML parameters again. That reduced
the the time to generate index from 45 minutes to 5, that is not so bad
Thanks a lot Jirka !!!!!

Speaking of setindex. When creating the htmlhelp chunks, the generation of
an index takes a very long time. I have six books in a set. Creating
chunked html and a pdf version for each of the book takes about 20 min on
a 750 Mhz PC (only two of these books has an index).
When chuking the set for htmlhelp (the chunking takes about 13 minutes
(and another 50 minutes for the setindex). That looks like some
optimizations could be done either in htmlhelp-common.xsl or in the
index.xsl code ???
And what indexing method are you using for HTML Help? Do you set
htmlhelp.use.hhk to 1?
Anyway index in HTML Help should be faster than in HTML as there is no
grouping and sorting. I noticed that HTML Help doesn't override template
for setindex. Try to add the following template into your customization
and measure times again.
This should prevent stylesheet from generating HTML page with index as
index is done in other way in HTML Help.
