> First of all, let me know if this is even feasible. If it is, this is how I see

> Programmatically associate a control with a glossary term (brief description)

> control in www.foo.gov/pagexyz.html. This could be helpful in numerous

> 1. Where the describedby text need not be visible on the same page.
> 2. When an image needs a description.
> 3. Link needs additional description.
> 4. Form control needs additional explanation.
> 5. When a superscript needs to be associated.

It will be feasible after the longdesc is reinstated in HTML5. It is ISSUE-30.
