Thanks! I can glean a good list of terms from there.

I do have to be careful what keywords are used. It may become annoying to have a zillion links show up in someone's post, like with common terms such as "wheel" and "axle". I'll likely get a bit more specific, like "wheel bore" and "axle head".

It will take awhile to get the encyclopedia completed, but I'll plink away at it as I have a chance.

In the mean time I have added a modification to prevent users from "shouting" (using all capital letters) or using all lower case letters. Both ways of writing are harder to read than using appropriate capitalization.

It was getting annoying (at least to me) for the encyclopedia keywords to be showing up in members posts, so a little while ago I disabled that portion of the encyclopedia modification.
