I created a glossary DTD some time ago. I used it to create a glossary 
and created some scripts to create automated linking. It allows for 
multiple definitions, links to more info, citations, abreviations etc.

Of course I also created a stylesheet to convert to XDoc.

Are we interested? If so I could knock up a quick input plugin for this 
(not sure when I'll get time, but should be within a week or so, in the 
meantime I'll put the DTD's, stylesheets etc. in an issue so someone 
else can do it if they have time.
