White paper from the OASIS DITA Adoption Committee. Authored by Tony Self, , HyperWrite PTY Ltd. Published 16 December 2009

Improved glossary and terminology handling

DITA 1.2 introduces significant improvements to the way in which terminology is handled. A new glossary entry element provides a flexible semantic structure to store terminology information, and the new indirect linking functionality allows terms occurring in the content to be linked through a key reference or transcluded using a new abbreviated-form element. Keys used for key referencing are defined in a new glossref specialisation of topicref in the map.
