[Tex/LaTex] Glossary as appendix

appendicesglossariessectioning

I'm using the glossaries package to manage my glossary. This works nicely, except that it forces a page break and creates a huge heading saying Glossary that conflicts with the style of my paper somewhat.

Ideally I'd like to stick it in as Appendix A, using the same style for the heading as the Appendix headings, and not messing up the other appendices. Is this possible?

I can't test it right now, but according to section 2.2. of the glossaries manual (and assuming a document class whose \chapter and \section macros at least resemble those of the standard classes), loading

\usepackage[section,numberedsection=autolabel]{glossaries}

in the preamble and issuing \printglossaries immediately after \appendix in the document body should do what you want.

EDIT: Minimal working example (including some speculation about your appendix numbering scheme):

\documentclass{report}

\usepackage[section,numberedsection=autolabel]{glossaries}
\makeglossaries

\newglossaryentry{electrolyte}{name=electrolyte,%
    description={solution able to conduct electric current}}

\begin{document}

\chapter{First}

Some text about \gls{electrolyte}.

\appendix

\chapter*{Appendix}
\markboth{\MakeUppercase{Appendix}}{\MakeUppercase{Appendix}}

\renewcommand*{\thesection}{A.\arabic{section}}

\printglossaries

\end{document}
