Is there any code that will allow me to highlight or Link any terminologies that show up in my site pages that are part of the glossary list webpart?

Kind of like an auto linker for Sharepoint 2010 with no designer access.

I'm looking to have the terminology auto connect to a filtered glossary web part on the same page or a new page if needed be or maybe even have a popup of the definition pulled from the list if the word is in the glossary and is clicked?

Is this possible?

If you are able to use SP Designer, you can probably use jQuery to do this.  

You'd just have to update the word list using another jQuery function

Thank you for responding - I unfortunately do not have access to designer.  Is there a workaround available?

If you can use open source applications and if you have a dev environment, you can try this link. However there is just a zip file on the source page.  

You can always try to contact the submitter also.

Aside from this, without designer access, or building a custom visual studio solution, I'm at a loss, sorry.

I sincerely appreciate your help - you had some great solutions; though I unfortunately can't make it work with my limited SP skills and lack of Designer access.

Many thanks!  Please let me know if you can assist with my other inquiries... I'm new to SharePoint :)
