{{abbr}} is an abbreviation template. It works similarly to the HTML <abbr> or <acronym> tags.

Usage

{{abbr}} takes two unnamed parameters, in order:

  1. The short form, which shows as text on the page.
  2. The long form, which the short form is an abbreviation for.

Many web browsers (such as, Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari) show the long form as a tooltip when a user hovers over the text. However, this behavior is not guaranteed and should not be relied on.

Example with two parameters

{{abbr
 |MSLP
 |Mean Sea Level Pressure
}}

appears as MSLP. When hovering over the text, something like Mean Sea Level Pressure appears as a tooltip in many (but not all) browsers. Popular screen readers, used by visually impaired readers, display the long form in a different way.

Accessibility concerns

This template is intended for use with abbreviations; it is not intended to be a tool for generating tooltips. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines contain guidelines for using the <abbr> element generated by this template; see section H28: Providing definitions for abbreviations by using the abbr and acronym elements.
