Description

While Glossarys are usually limited to component or section boundaries, appearing at the end of a Book or Chapter, for instance, GlossLists can appear anywhere that the other list types are allowed.

Using a GlossList in running text, instead of a VariableList, for example, maintains the semantic distinction of a Glossary. This distinction may be necessary if you want to automatically point to the members of the list with GlossTerms in the body of the text.
