Separate document

Marking the clauses that require defining. Set them out in the document in between & (ampersand) markers.

 

The Process

When you are ready to process the document for its definitions, press Alt-P (for process). Pathagoras will check for Options and Optional text blocks(if there are any) and then process the Defnitions blocks. It will look for any &Terms& in the document and compare them to Definitions exisiting in the document (as determiened by bookmarks.)
