How would you go about putting in text that you want in the glossary but not
in the flow of the text?

Subject: Auto-generating glossary
Well, during my much relaxing bath, I had the great idea of an auto
generting glossary. Ya see, today we do db2html and let our hard disks whir
a few seconds. When we load the index.html file, the first thing we're
is a TOC. From what I can tell, the TOC is generated from the <sect> tags
the <title> tags. Why don't we write a similar method for glossary? To
the people who write this from hating me, I will try to give some sort of an
example :) This is a segment of a made up SGML file I put together right
Evolution's mail client is made to do
<termdef> Email is a way of electronically sending mail through the
for fast delivery instead of regular mail which takes hours, days, and
weeks to deliver.</termdef>
Okay, then when I generate the .sgml using db2html, the paragraph in text
"Evolution's mail client is made to do email. Email is a way of
sending mail through the internet for fast delivery instead of regular mail
which takes hours, days, and even weeks to deliver."
Then, in the glossary, it'll say:
"Email - Email is a way of eletronically sending mail blah blah blah..."
You get my point. I think this would help get some extra organization going
make creating a glossary easier for everyone!
What does everyone think?
