<glossAlternateFor> element indicates when a variant term has
a relationship to another variant term in addition to the preferred term.
<glossAlternateFor>element is available inside the
<glossAlt>element, which is a container that provides a variant for the primary
<glossentry>term. In some cases, the variant might also be an alternate for another term. In the example below, the abbreviation "stick" is a variant of the primary term (USB flash drive). The
<glossAlternateFor>element indicates that "stick" is also a variant of the synonym "memory stick".
