Wow ! That's fun, you're using a *really* old version of Jigsaw. The
other fun thing is that in fact, at the beginning jigsaw index files
(yes they did exist at that time) were using an SGML compliant format,
and parsed through avh's parser. I lost the spec of this format, but I
think it was pretty to close the the applet tag (I don't know how
close this is to the resource tag), eg:

<entry name="resource name">
<param name="some-param" value="some-value">

Then you could set filters by wrapping this into a <filter> </filter>
block (as far as I remember).

But old this is very old, you should upgrade to the latest version
