This may not be a greenstone specific question but I thought I'd give
this list a try.

We are working on a collection that consists of articles that we've
secured pubisher permissions to reproduce on CD.

We would like to include a dictionary of terms with our CD. However,
the publisher of the dictionary is concerned that when we release the
CD, people could print a copy of the dictionary and hurt sales of the
actually dictionary.

Ideally, we would like to *hide* the dictionary on the CD and only
query it when a user clicked a link for a term associated with a
particular page.

We considered adding definitions to each of our html articles but that
would be very inefficient since many terms repeat. In addition because
of the size of our collection space would become an issue.

Any ideas on how to achieve this would be appreciated.
