      Terminology can be an important heading in legal indexes to gather glossary entries and definitions from throughout the document. A twist on this is the 'glindex', a combined glossary and index that is sometimes used as a way of grouping end matter and/or saving space. Glindex-style indexes have been used with pronunciation guides and chemical formula diagrams.
