<para>This parameter permits you to override
the text to insert between
the end of an index term and its list of page references.
Typically that might be a comma and a space.
</para>

<para>Because this text may be locale dependent,
this parameter's value is normally taken from a gentext
template named 'term-separator' in the
context 'index' in the stylesheet
locale file for the language
of the current document.
This parameter can be used to override the gentext string,
and would typically be used on the command line.
This parameter would apply to all languages.
</para>

<para>So this text string can be customized in two ways.
You can reset the default gentext string using
the <parameter>local.l10n.xml</parameter> parameter, or you can
fill in the content for this normally empty 
override parameter.
The content can be a simple string, or it can be
something more complex such as a call-template.
For fo output, it could be an <tag>fo:leader</tag>
element to provide space of a specific length, or a dot leader.
