Simply using something similar such as ><DEFINITION> won't work since, unlike <FOOTNOTE> and <MARGIN> which use >some browser chosen symbols as the "hot-link" (or can I do ><FOOTNOTE SRC="symbol"> to use a user-defined symbol?), a definition needs >a word or phrase. Something like: > ><DEFINITION TERM="obscure-techie-term">You wouldn't understand</DEFINITION> Actually, that doesn't seem to be too bad. The <IMG> tag sets a similar precedent. Perhaps <FOOTNOTE> and <MARGIN> could be enhanced to add the SRC attribute and a MARKER attribute to allow the writer to specify a graphic or textual marker to be placed in the document marking the note. I suspect that creating a new <DEFINITION> tag when you could simply use a footnote or margin note might be overkill, however. Michael Johnson Relay Technology, Inc.
