The glossAlt element contains a variant term for the preferred term. The variant should have the same meaning as the term in the glossterm element; the variant is simply another way to refer to the same term. There might be many ways to refer to a term; each variant is placed in its own glossAlt element. The glossUsage element can be used within glossAlt to indicate when use of the alternate term is appropriate.
