Hi Enrico,

We are a company specialized in XSL-FO and XEP consulting.

We developed an extension for XEP last year which moves the index from the 
back-of-the-book to the front-matter.
Please let me know if that is of interest for you and if yes, I would need 
to know how you are calling XEP (script file, Java API, .NET api, etc...)

Best regards,
Jost
