Revision Content

HTML Acronym Element

<acronym>...</acronym> - This element allows authors to clearly indicate a sequence of characters that compose an acronym or abbreviation for a word.

Example

I modified my <acronym title="eXtensible HyperText Markup Language">XHTML</acronym> all night to make it validated by the 
<acronym title="World Wide Web Consortium">W3C</acronym>.

Result

I modified my XHTML all night to make it validated by the W3C.

Notes

The purpose of this tag is purely for the convenience of the author. However, Opera and Mozilla will add a dotted underline to the acronym when the page is rendered. Unlike the abbreviation element, the full meaning of an acronym is not displayed.
