Word explanations

Hi Jun!

A couple of years ago some friends and I made an 'interactive website' as a project for the university. One of the features was a 'parser' that found all instances of words in the HTML that was listed in a vocabulary, and sourounded them with a tag, thereby creating a reference to the vocabulary where the particular word was explained. We also added an extra feature which made it possible to see the explanation of one of these words by putting the cursor on top of the word which produced a 'short' explanation in a box (setting the alt-tag if I remember right).

Since this board is often used by newcomers and since many different types of aikido are represented, perhaps such a vocabulary/word explanation feature could be a help to avoid some of those 'what do you mean by...' questions which often make a discussion run by a tangent.

Just a suggestion. Otherwise thank you for a great site, which as it is allready steals far to much of my time.
