      Description

        With JDK-8286470 we included section links in the javadoc-generated index files to allow searching for for section headings. This also caused section links to appear in the static index pages. Unfortunately, section links are usually not curated to make sense in such an index. It also caused new split-index pages to be created for numeric characters in JDK documentation because many headings in JDK documentation begin with an ordinal number (see attached screenshot).

        Update: The initial solution was to exclude section links from the static index pages. This was changed to including section links, but using the first valid Java identifier start character as key. The title of this issue has been updated to reflect the new approach.
