Ah, well in that case perhaps what you should be contemplating is creating a glossary document and then adding a <LINK> to your regular document, along the lines of: <LINK href="my-glossary-document" rel="UseGlossary"> An HTML3 browser is supposed to use this to try to resolve glossary queries in the document. The reader makes glossary queries by, for example, double clicking on a word, or selecting a word with a pointer drag and then applying a glossary action from a pulldown menu to the selected word. You could then use the <DFN> tag to semantically mark the words that actually appear in the glossary, so that the reader would know which words a glossary query would succeed for.
