The following markup puts "structural elements" in a special font (boldface with a dotted underscore) to indicate it is a glossary term and creates a hyperlink to the glossary. Because the glossary entry contains a space, the text is in quotes. The plural form appears in the text. HelpTag checks for the singular form in the glossary and reports an error if it is not found.
