Hi all,
I'm surprised noone's mentioned Shoebox yet! I've used it to make both
bilingual and trilingual dictonaries of various lengths, and you can put
examples, etymological information, cross-referencing, paradigm forms and
all that in the entry. It creates printed dictionaries, not interactive
computer things, but if you want to format complicated dictionary entries
painlessly then I'd recommend this. It also has concordancing in a wodlist
function, and ou can tie the dictionary to interlinearised texts. It's now
about US$40, available from SIL (www.sil.org).
