First of all I'm wondering why exactly you would like to have your glossary as a MSWord document. Surely it takes a lot of the interest out of Moodle's autolink system.
You are aware that there is a printer-friendly output of glossaries, which you can output to printer, or virtual printer and from there to e.g. PDF (see this discussion)?
Anyway, if you are using a recent version of Word (Office 2003) you can get a user-friendly output of a Moodle glossary XML file, if you link it to an *.XSL stylesheet.
- Download the attached moodleglossary.xsl stylesheet and save to your computer.
- Open MS Word and open your glossary, e.g. myglossary.xml.
- MS Word will show the XML tree structure of the file and the data.
- It will ask you if you want to do an "XSLT transform", using an external file (or something like that, I don't have an English version of MS Word). Navigate to your moodleglossary.xsl ... et voila what you'll see, e.g. using the Moodle glossary_of_common_terms:
Definition: <nolink>Applets are small programs written in Java and embedded within web pages. Most recent browsers can run these small programs if you have Java installed on your computer.</nolink>
Definition: Abbreviation for "Cascading Style Sheets". CSS defines styles and colours and how they should be applied to a web page.
Please note that if your glossary definitions have embedded images, HTML formatting, etc. all will be lost. Hope that helps.
