Example: Links from <term> or <keyword> elements
In this scenario, a company with well-developed glossary wants to ensure that instances of a term that is defined in the glossary always include a link to the glossary topic.
An information architect adds values for the @keys attribute to all the of the <topicref> elements that are in the DITA map for the glossary, for example:
<map> <title>Company-wide glossary</title> <topicref keys="term-1" href="term-1.dita"/> <topicref keys="term-2" href="term-2.dita"/> <topicref keys="term-3" href="term-3.dita"/> <topicref keys="term-4" href="term-4.dita"/> </map>
When authors refer to a term in a topic, they use the following mark-up:
When the <term> element is rendered, the content is provided by the <title> element of the glossary topic. The <term> element also is rendered as a link to the glossary topic.
