Hi Guys, Forgive me if my question is newbie but I'm indeed a newbie both to latex and to Lyx as well.I was trying to use some supported way to highlight abbreviations in a Lyx document but I found no good way so far. I also did the standard drill of looking through forums etc. without any luck.
What I'm trying to achieve is something similar to the behavior of the <abbr> tag in HTML; a way to semantically tell that a given piece of text is an abbreviation and the ability to apply a common style to all the different abbreviations. The nomenclature package looks promising but - as far as I understand - it lacks this feature. It would be also nice to have a capability in Lyx that automatically converts pieces of texts into abbreviations based on the list of nomenclatures entered previously. Let me give you a quick example. I enter a nomenclature entry like: "HTML" = "Hyper Text Markup Language", for example. Later in the document when I write "HTML" Lyx would automatically recognize the text as a known abbreviation and in the rendered document all the occurrences of the string "HTML" would have been styled as italics - maybe as hyperlinks to the nomenclature list. What do you think? Is it possible to have something similar off the shelf? Thank you in advance! Cheers, Peter
