There is no glossary tooltip for a word I would like to look up

Try the glossary search box displayed on the Product guide pages, including this page. Many terms in the glossary are not highlighted in the text to avoid crowding the text too much. The main search may find information about terms that are not included in the glossary.

The glossary tooltip explanation seems wrong

The glossary tooltips sometimes show a definition that does not quite match. This is because the system matches the terms automatically with simple character matching. In some cases the glossary tooltip applies to a different use of the term. We are sorry about this, but we hope that you still find the glossary tooltips useful in most cases.
