Re: Quick and Easy Poll
When building your index (or concordance, really, since I am not an Index artiste) do you include glossary entries? My instinct says 'no', but my instinct also said to have that last piece of
pizza at lunch - and that didn't work out too well. So... should I include the glossary entries in the index?
Feed your instinct a Tums and give it a day off <g>.
I've included glossary entries ever since a client's VP complained: "I don't need a @#$% procedure. I just want to know what it IS!" So, I now include the glossary entries, but give them a distinctive typographic treatment that is defined in the index page headers. This is similar to the way I handle diagrams and graphics and other not-straight-text stuff. For example,
N (in italics) = glossary entry
N (boldface) = figure or table
