Glossary Defined

A glossary is a list of specialized words with their definitions, often placed at the end of a book. In an online Help system, glossary terms can be formatted to appear as hyperlinks which, when clicked, open or jump to a window containing the definition of the term. Doc-To-Help automatically creates an empty glossary document whenever a new project is created.
