Before adding an item to this page, please click Edit to see how an entry is formatted. I would submit for your consideration that this glossary be limited to a listing of elements found in relevant API s, rather than every term that appears somewhere within this site's pages. For those other 'undefined' terms, consider establishing a link to an existing external or internal page, or creating a new, separate page and establishing links to it. Thank-you.
