No

The following code

<glossentry id="bar">
<glossterm>BAR</glossterm>
<glossdef>
<para>bar</para>
</glossdef>
</glossentry>

<glossentry id="foo">
<glossterm><abbrev>FOO</abbrev></glossterm>
<glossdef>
<para>F.O.O.</para>
<glossseealso>bar</glossseealso>
</glossdef>
</glossentry>

I would expect, that like using a

<glossterm><abbrev>foo</abbrev></glossterm>

construct, a cross-link. But all I get is just text:

"See also bar."

The "bar" is not linked like the "foo" in the other
example. So I would request automatic linking of such
glossseealso and glosssee elements.

A parameter like glosssee.auto.link could control the
behaviour.

    A small explanation: I would think, that creating the link for

    <glossseealso>$term_of_a_glossterm</glossseealso>

    is more intentional then the

    <glossseealso><glossterm>$term_of_a_glossterm</glossterm></glossseealso>

    construct, that creates the link. Following the explanation
    of glosssee and glossseealso, they are cross-links between
    glossar entries. So the necessity of the glossterm element
    inside glosssee(also) to create the link is IMO not useful.

    I should better read the docs carefully. Then I maybe do not
    miss existing attributes. Closing this as invlalid.
