New MozillaZine Features

by CHRIS NELSON | Here's one example to get you started:

I know of at least one person who would like to see a Glossary section :). So, I've come up with an idea that may make the page more helpful to the "great unwashed" :). It's an interactive glossary, where the readers can submit new entries. My thoughts on this are that it is definitely possible, and more than that, it may be a relatively simple task to create an "Activate Glossary" button on each article page that would parse through the page, compare words to entries in the database, and flag them with links to the appropriate definition. This is sort of an application of the idea that went into slashdot's "everything" engine, but more specific to this site. The definitions would be confined to technical and Mozilla-specific jargon. What do you think?

What other ideas do you have?
