    First of all, this is a beautifully simple yet powerful plugin, so thanks!

    I have a couple of feature requests/suggestions to deliver an even greater user experience. Of course you may justifiably say they are not within the scope of this specific plugin, so feel free to tell me so. :)

    1. "more info": the tooltip is great for displaying short definitions - I know, that's the point. But I'd also like to be able to provide more info if they actually click on the link to the glossary page. Would there be a way of having the first paragraph of the page as the tooltip then provide more info below? That way if you do add too much text it wouldn't disable the tooltip, as it does now (rightly so - you cannot have a tooltip of 500 characters!)

    2. Links: related to the first issue, I'd like to add html links to other pages or indeed other websites to provide more information on a topic. Currently if I add a link, at least in WP 3.1, the whole web address - plus the mouseover javascript code - replaces the glossary term in both the text and the definition.

    Thanks!

    Hi Arthur,

    I had the same thoughts... if you follow the link above, and make the little mod, you can use the excerpt to provide the short 'tooltip' pop-up and then use the main post content for a full detailed definition (with links).

    And Nando even fixed what I broke for UTF8!!! Yeah! Thanx Nando!
