Sure you can;

For HTML as well as PS/PDF I use

perl ./  -s Symbols -t Index \
  -g -i index -N -o index.sgml
cp *.sgml tempdir
(cd tempdir; jade -t sgml -ihtml -d $(cygnus)\#print \
   -V html-index -V nochunks MAIL_FILE.sgml > foo.html)
perl ./ -s Symbols -t Index  -g -i index \
 -o index.sgml tempdir/HTML.index

If it bites back mail me again.
