The current mechanism of escaping special characters to create HTML anchor names (at least when converting from index words) uses the format ":HH", where HH are hexadecimal digits.

This format is unsited when Compiled HTML Help output is enabled, as the help viewer gags on colons in anchor names.

Can you please attach a self-contained example (source+config file in a tar or zip) that allows us to reproduce the problem?

I've figured out by now that the problem can be solved without modifying the general HTML output, by substituting colons within anchor names in the index.hhk with "%3A".

I'll submit a corresponding pull request within the next few hours.
