Automatic glossaries and seealso
2012-05-25 18:43:23 GMT
I’m using <glossary role=”auto” /> to generate a glossary for multiple documents from the same source.
This works great, unless I use a glossterm in the document that contains a <glossseealso> element. When this happens, I get the “See also” reference in the generated glossary, but if the glossterm was not used in the document, the reference term isn’t in the glossary.
My document contains:
My glossary has <glossseealso>cooling</glossseealso>
So when I run the stylesheets, I get “See also, cooling” under the entry for heating, even though “cooling” isn’t in the generated glossary.
I would either like to automatically add the term to the generated glossary or remove the seealso reference for terms that are not used.
(Could this also be a bug? It doesn’t seem like expected behavior.)
