I've not worked with docbook before but I have no objection to learning
it. The glossary I have at the moment is HTML with a little CSS, but
I'll look have a look at the GDP help and see if I can sed it over to
SGML. I've also considered making use of the DICT format which should
make the glossaries readily available. (It might be a good idea to look
at making dict an integral part of some apps, but more later.)
