HTML Acronym tag


Acronym tag Description:

The HTML acronym tag element defines its content as an acronym, and is commonly used together with the "title" attribute to expand/explain the acronym. Visual browsers usually render the content of the "title" attibute as a "tool tip" (when the user puts the mouse pointer over the element for a short period of time). But in this case, you must not forget that the "title" attribute provides the expansion/explanation of the acronym.

By marking up acronyms you can give useful information to browsers, spell checkers, translation systems and search-engine indexers.

The <acronym> tag is not supported in HTML5. Use the <abbr> tag instead.

The <acronym> tag defines an acronym.

An acronym can be spoken as if it were a word, example NATO, NASA, ASAP, GUI.
