Subject: Re: [docbook] glossary

Hi Dave,
I think my question wasn't very clear.  I understand that it is a print book
with page numbers.  What I wasn't understanding is what element in the body
of the book that the reference from the glossary is pointing to.  Is it to
be a firstterm element, an inline glossterm, a section, a para, or what?
When the reader follows the page reference from the glossary, what do they

I often use page references from a glossary, but usually to a section that
provides further information about the glossary entry.  I just add an xref
at the end of the glossdef paragraph.
