Glossary helps newbies understand the jargon which always crops up when specialists talk about a topic. Doctors discuss CBC and EKG and CCs. Web developers keep talking about CSS, P2P, XSLT, etc. This can all be intimidating for newbies.
The glossary module scans content for glossary terms (including synonyms). The glossary indicator is inserted after every found term, or the term itself is turned into an indicator, depending on the site settings. By hovering over the indicator, users will see the definition of that term displayed as a "tool tip." Clicking the indicator leads the user to that term presented within the whole glossary or directly to the detailed description of the term, if available.
The glossary uses Drupal's built in taxonomy feature, so you organize your terms in a Drupal vocabulary. This allows you to create hierarchical structures, synonyms, and relations. Glossary terms are represented with the taxonomy terms in the glossary vocabulary. Descriptions are used to provide a short explanation of the terms. You can attach nodes to the terms to provide detailed explanation on the keywords.
