HTML for SAC Acronym

when SAC means Simple API for CSS

New! Now updated with the inheritance rules for the title attribute in HTML 5

The easiest way to create HTML code indicating that the acronym SAC stands for Simple API for CSS is to simply include the acronym in an HTML <a> tag and an abbreviation tag (not an acronym tag):

<a href="http://www.Acronyms.net/terms/s/Simple-API-for-CSS/" title="Simple API for CSS"
onclick="if (confirm('SAC stands for Simple API for CSS')) return false;"
>
<abbr>SAC</abbr>
</a>

This is the recommended code for both HTML 4 browsers and HTML 5 browsers. Some browsers, most notably IE, do not activate help when the title attribute is coded on the <abbr> tag, but they do work as expected for titles on the <a> tag. The <abbr> tag inherits its title attribute from the parent <a> tag.

If you are creating HTML code for the definition of Simple API for CSS, the meaning of the acronym SAC, then include a <dfn> definition tag around the <abbr> abbreviation tag and follow the entire HTML code for the hypertext link with the definition of the term:

<p>A <a href="http://www.Acronyms.net/terms/s/Simple-API-for-CSS/" title="Simple API for CSS"
onclick="if (confirm('SAC stands for Simple API for CSS')) return false;"
>
<dfn><abbr title="Simple API for CSS">SAC</abbr>
</a> is ...(definition of Simple API for CSS)....</p>

The <dfn> tag gets the term being defined from the title attribute of the <abbr> tag. The result should look like this (hovering your mouse over the SAC acronym shows the expanded meaning of the acronym):

A SAC is ...(definition of "Simple API for CSS")....

If you are creating HTML code that simply expands the acronym then indicate that it is the SAC acronymn which is being defined using an HTML <dfn> tag with a title attribute around the <abbr> tag and follow the HTML for the hypertext link with the acronym definition:

<p>When we use the acronym <a href="http://www.Acronyms.net/terms/s/Simple-API-for-CSS/" title="Simple API for CSS"
onclick="if (confirm('SAC stands for Simple API for CSS')) return false;"
>
<dfn title="SAC"><abbr title="Simple API for CSS">SAC</abbr></dfn>
</a> it is the abbreviation for Simple API for CSS.</p>

The result should look like this (hovering your mouse over the SAC acronym shows the definition):

When we use the acronym SAC it is the abbreviation for Simple API for CSS.

Acronym Vocabulary URI Declaration

For the remaining examples, the Acronym Vocabulary namespace URI needs to be declared for use with element tag names and attribute values. For an HTML web page, the beginning of the file should look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html [
<!ENTITY at "http://Acronyms.net/terms/">
<!ENTITY av "http://Acronyms.net/vocabulary/">
]>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:av="&av;">
<head>
<style type="text/css">
.hide { display: none }
</style>
...

This only needs to be done once per document file.
