Editing

Editing the glossary is way better in HTML as the visual mode causes some unwanted nesting of elements which results in really bad appearance. I formatted this page and build some template for everybody. Its quite easy to use:
A small HTML template to easily structure this glossary.
Explained:
  1. < p >...< / p > - Establishes a paragraph
  2. < h6 >...< /h6 > - Generates a (small) sub-headline
  3. < br > - Generates a line break
