I have written a few manuals in which terms appeared in the glossary, but not
the manual. Sometimes they are alternate names for the same object, sometimes
(especially in manuals aimed at beginning users of the software) they are
general terms used in the industry (currently digital graphic printing).
Either way, I include them in the index, and include the listings for
"glossary" and "terminology".
