Default How do I create a link from words in a .doc to a glossary?

We have a document that is a handbook. There are many terms in it that need
to be defined, so we are creating a glossary at the end of the .doc. We would
like to make the words in the body text into a link that jumps to that
definition. Is this possible in Word 2003? Thanks for any tips or ideas. I
could not find any at the Office site.

Bookmark each term in the glossary. Then select a word in the body of the
document and use the Insert Hyperlink dialog to create a link to the
bookmark.
