Abstract

On-line publications are provided with a glossary which allows users to search for a term or function and then 'branch' to relevant parts of the publication(s). This limits use to linkages defined by the developers.

User Extendable Glossary Index

       On-line publications are provided with a glossary which
allows users to search for a term or function and then 'branch' to
relevant parts of the publication(s).  This limits use to linkages
defined by the developers.

      This limitation can be overcome by allowing user- or site-
defined extensions to the Glossary. This will enable higher-level
linkages and terminology.  These extensions can be used by a site
administrator to bridge between IBM and the industry-specific
terminology (e.g., Office system in Lawyer's Office may index BRIEF
to be Document).
