I will keep you in mind. It does require a little experience wth XML.

Well, the glossary pages do not necessarily need to be generated dynamically.
We could create them in advance and then display_glossary.pl just creates the
framework and inserts the *completed* glossary page.
What I would like is the ability to download a complete set of pages and have
as much info as possible, include glossary, commands and files. The user
could have a choice between a set that is installed as a web server or
