All is fine with this feature, it was merely a matter of not duplicating 
the word ... one in the file, and one in the style to create the guideword.

I've sent a sample file to Jan for her reference.

Susan Christensen will have to answer about her intent. She designed the

But to me, it *looks* as though it is something that Susan was forced 
into doing, due to a limitation in DBT. For table of content entries, it 
is possible to design a style that marks text for the TOC, and it is 
further possible to do so while either retaining or removing the word(s) 
from the document body. However, DBT doesn't really support the option 
of retaining marked guideword text in the body of a document. So it's 
probable that you'll have to duplicate the words that you mark as

Not sure if I am doing something wrong or not here. I have highlighted a 
guide word, used the style in BANA template and translated the page. My 
guide word is centered on line 25 but the guide word has disappeared in 
the paragraph of text. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
