From the Definition area of the glossary: is it possible to
create a link for the user to go to a topic? For example. IRS
Codes: The IRS uses several codes to ......, click on this link to
access a table of codes.
If you create a Glossary topic (instead of the RH default,
that is), you could create all the links you want. For accessing
this topic file, you can add an icon/label in the toolbar of your
skin, or you can add a Glossary link in every topic.
Conversion shouldn't be too bad: the info in the .GLO file
(sample below) can be easily converted. Create a style for the term
and description paragraphs, assign them to the info, then strip all
of the "NAME=" identifiers.
