Using the MakeIndex package to create an index, I wanted to have an
entry, as if it were an ordinary R, but printed as a blackboard bold
R. The following indexing entry in the text
\index{R@$\mathbb{R}$}
(following the rules on p. 652 of the Latex Companion, 2nd ed.) was
rejected. Here is the
entry from the ilg file:
!! Input index error (file = Calculus.idx, line = 32):
-- Extra `@' at position 5 of first argument.
The line referred to in the idx file is
\indexentry{R@$\@mathbb {R}$}{17}
So the program itself seems to add an extra @, which creates an
error. How do I avoid the
problem?
