    We are starting this journey using our WordPress blog jrnl both as a place for discussion and implementation and testing of text interaction ideas.   initial functionality : glossary   Authoring The user will select any text while authoring and in the text tools dialog a ‘g’ will appear, which the user can click on to view a list of all posts which have been categorised in the [Glossary Term] Category.
