Now that we have a bit of an understanding of how the deployment formats work, let's take a more adventurous step, and create our own deployment format. As explained in Chapter 9, Adding Value to Your Topics, UPK does not provide the ability to publish the Glossary as a stand-alone document. In this section, we will build our own Glossary output document, to address this limitation.
This is a fairly technical operation, but we'll keep the technicalities to a minimum, and explain everything as we go along. If nothing else, this section will at least take away some of the mystery, and give you the confidence to consider customizing UPK's document formats yourself, should you so desire.
