Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

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


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

  1. The short form, which shows as text on the page.
  2. The long form, which many w:web browsers show as a w:tooltip when a user hovers over the text.


 |Mean Sea Level Pressure

appears as MSLP. When hovering over the text, Mean Sea Level Pressure will appear as a tooltip.
