But, since people don't seem to know the real name
of the key, they would not find it by looking up its
name in your glossary.

So, put the picture of the key where the name should
be, in the glossary (followed by the definition)... which
would probably make that one of the first entries in your
glossary (symbols sort before letters, don't they?)... but
then, if you have more than one glossary item that is a
symbol/picture, how do you decide what their 'alphabetical'
order is supposed to be?

Time for my nap.
