Using colored text, such as green, could be helpful so that they can easily 
identify the defined/linked term at a glance. For instance, if the term used is 
a phrase like gain fluctuation or return loss, so that they don't think you're 
just defining fluctuation and loss, respectively.

  I am creating unstructured guides in FrameMaker 7.2. The guides are
primarily for print, but our customers also received PDF copies.

There are terms that I need to define, so I have created a glossary. I
want to use a visual indicator, so that anyone using either the print or
the PDF guide would know that a term is defined in the glossary.

So far I have been using a graphic question mark icon that I place
directly beside a term. I describe the meaning of the icon in the
typographical conventions section of each guide's introduction.

Any thoughts on a better way to indicate glossary entries? I am not
wanting to use a cross-reference or hyperlink in particular, but I'm
willing to consider all suggestions.
