Description

How to reproduce:

1. Create a file q.tex with the following contents:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage[style=long3colheader]{glossaries}
\newglossaryentry{N}{name={N}, description={N}}
\begin{document}
$\gls{N}_{\gls{N}}$
\end{document}
2. Run
latex q.tex && dvips -o q.ps q.dvi
3. Run
xdvi q.dvi &
gv q.ps &
4. Observe that both occurencies of N are generated same size, which is incorrect.

When \usepackage{hyperref} is commented out, the second occurence of N is generated smaller, the way it should be for the lower index.

Loading hyperref after glossaries produces right font size at the cost of functionaility. Namely, the hyperlinks from the text items to the glossary are gone then.

I would be grateful if you, perhaps together with the maintainer of hyperref, could correct the issue.

Thanks!

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage[style=long3colheader]{glossaries}
\newglossaryentry{N}{name={N}, description={N}}
\begin{document}
$\gls{N}_{\gls{N}}$
\end{document}

Evaluation

This is not a bug in glossaries as the same issue occurs without the glossaries package, but it only occurs when you use latex instead of pdflatex. Minimal example:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{hyperref}

\begin{document}
Target: \hypertarget{N}{N}.

\[
  N_N
\]
\[
  \hyperlink{N}{N}_{\hyperlink{N}{N}}
\]
\end{document}
This is either an issue with the DVI format of LaTeX or with hyperref. I recommend you use pdflatex rather than latex if you want hyperlinks in your document, as it has much better support for hyperlinks. If you really must create a DVI file, then try $\gls{N}[_{\glsentrytext{N}}]$ instead. This will bring the subscript inside the hyperlink but note that you need to use \glsentrytext not \gls.
