Hi David,

You didn't say what the bug was so I haven't read that lately.
I think a glossary is a good idea for those with no internet connection.
Sorry I don't have any ideas about tools for finding terms that should be in
a glossary.
Maybe you could follow the XML usage in the guide, Ch 9 Investments, Basic
Concepts, Terminology?

Regards, Chris Good
