new Glossary template

The glossary entries are now created automatically. Any member of the Glossary category now automatically get a link here in the appropriate alphabetical section. The short description must be entered into a template call on the respective description page. This template call has two forms - in this one the Short descriptive text is not displayed on the respective page:

{{Glossary|Short descriptive text}}

'Short descriptive text' must be replaced by a short (one sentence) definition of the respective word. If you want the short descriptive text displayed on the page as well, you can use:

{{Glossary|Short descriptive text|1}}

Both are calls to Template:Glossary and both add

[[Category:Glossary]] 

automatically, there is no need to specify it on the page explicitly. --Erik Krause 23:14, 18 November 2007 (CET)
