Hi everyone -

I use RoboHelp 7.01 (English edition) to create Webhelp and HTML help
in Japanese, but we just discovered that our Japanese indices are sorted
alphabetically rather than phonetically.

My first question is: can I create Japanese indices in RH 7.0 so that
they sort phonetically or do I need to upgrade?

Regardless of if I can use 7.0 or not, I need a clean, easy-to-follow
procedure to make sure that my Japanese index is sorted phonetically.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
