Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] to get glossseealso to work for auto-glossary

Indeed, the workaround was written for DocBook 4.  I'll need to revise it for the next edition.  Has anyone tried a different workaround for DocBook 5?

Subject: [docbook-apps] to get glossseealso to work for auto-glossary

I tried to get glossseealso, i.e. the internal links to work when generating an auto-glossary. The problem is of course that the glossterms in the text are pulling in the according glossentries, but the glosssealso - links will then partly not work since for some of them there are no glossentries pulled in. This problem is stated in Bob Staytons book:

under "Links in a glossary collection", the second point.
There, a link to a workaround for that is given:

This workaround does not work, since the schema forbids to put a glossterm in a remark. So the suggested code seems to be wrong:

<glossary role="auto">
<remark>Make sure there's a reference to <glossterm>gloss-2</glossterm>.</remark>
<para>If you can see this, the document was processed incorrectly. Use
the <parameter>glossary.collection</parameter> parameter.</para>
This entry seems to be written for DocBook 4, since there is the placeholder glossentry in it, which is not necessary anymore.

I just wanted to make note of it, probably someone fixes the docu.
