Which would be better:

1. 

{{field-on:Topic}}HISTORY{{field-off:Topic}}

5708    A historian is a prophet in reverse.

August Wilhelm von Schlegel (1767–1845)

5709    All history is incomprehensible without Christ.

Joseph Ernest Renan (1823–1892)

{{field-on:Topic}}HOLINESS{{field-off:Topic}}

5734    Holy has the same root as wholly, it means complete. A man is not complete in spiritual stature if all his mind, heart, soul, and strength are not given to God.

R. J. Stewart

5735    A holy life is a voice; it speaks when the tongue is silent and is either a constant attraction or a perpetual reproof.

Archbishop Robert Leighton (1611–1684)

Or

2.

I have a couple of these I am working on and I would like to know before I get too far along.

Thanks.

Sir:

Not sure which is the better.  But I do appreciate all your efforts on our behalf.

Blessings,

Jim

EDIT: Looked up "field" in the wiki documentation and discovered I was wrong in my previous comment.  The field tag is used to limit searching, so I would only put it around the actual topic text and not the whole entry.  It wouldn't be very helpful around the whole entry.

James William Roberts, Jr.:
Which would be better:

I'm going to suggest neither Smile, and that you use milestones using English headwords instead. That will make your resource function like a dictionary, and will allow you to lookup words (i.e. 'topics') from the reference box, or by using the lookup command. The topic field is only used for searching, and probably isn't that useful. If you do want to use the field, you can use them in conjunction with headwords, but as Todd says, the field should only encompass the title, not the whole topic. I'd also be inclined to use one of Word's Heading styles for each entry, so that they appear in the table of contents:

[[@Headword:History]]{{field-on:Topic}}HISTORY{{field-off:Topic}}

5708    A historian is a prophet in reverse.

August Wilhelm von Schlegel (1767–1845)

5709    All history is incomprehensible without Christ.

Joseph Ernest Renan (1823–1892)

[[@Headword:Holiness]]{{field-on:Topic}}HOLINESS{{field-off:Topic}}

5734    Holy has the same root as wholly, it means complete. A man is not complete in spiritual stature if all his mind, heart, soul, and strength are not given to God.
