{{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 many web browsers show as a tooltip when a user hovers over the text.

Example

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

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