Glossary related elements
Elements related to the glossary specialization are not defined as part of the glossary topic type, but are often used in conjunction with those elements.
In this section:
- abbreviated-formThe <abbreviated-form> element represents a reference to a term that may appear in an abbreviated form (often an acronym). The long and short forms of the term are generally defined in a <glossentry> topic. Processors should display the referenced term when rendering an <abbreviated-form> element.
- glossrefThe <glossref> element is a convenience element in maps for creating a reference to a glossary topic. It has a required keys attribute, which forces the author to create a key by which inline terms may reference their definition. For example, when glossentry topics are used to define acronyms, this will remind authors to create a key which <abbreviated-form> elements may use to reference the short and expanded versions of that acronym.
- glossgroupThe <glossgroup> is a specialized topic element that may be used to contain multiple <glossentry> topics within a single collection.
