Use the <term> element as shown:
<term>word or phrase<\term>
Or, use the short form:
<term|word or phrase|
Or, use the shorthand form:
++word or phrase++
If the term within the help text isn't spelled exactly the same as the definition in the glossary, you can specify the "glossary form" of the term like this:
<term "glossary form">word or phrase<\term>
Where glossary form is the term exactly as it appears in the glossary. This is useful if the term must be plural in a help topic (because of its context), but must be singular in the glossary.
Terms are displayed using a bold font and automatically become a definition hyperlink. When the term is chosen, its glossary definition appears in a quick help dialog.
If you mark a term that you intentionally do not define in the glossary, add the nogloss attribute to the <term> element. This allows the term to be displayed in the bold font used for terms, but without creating a link to the glossary.
If your glossary has a definition for the term "widget", you can enter it as a term like this:
A ++widget++ is the fundamental building block of OSF/Motif user interfaces.
If the glossary entry is "widget", but you need to use the plural form within the sentence, you could enter the term like this:
<term "widget">Widgets<\term> are the fundamental building blocks of OSF/Motif user interfaces.
If you want to enter the same term, but you either don't want to include it in the glossary or you don't want it to be a hyperlink, use the nogloss parameter like this:
<term nogloss> Widgets<\term>are the fundamental building blocks of OSF/Motif user interfaces.
The equivalent short form is:
<term nogloss|Widgets| are the fundamental building blocks of OSF/Motif user interfaces.
