HTML for SLCC Acronym

when SLCC means Software License Commerce Client

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 SLCC stands for Software License Commerce Client 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/Software-License-Commerce-Client/" title="Software License Commerce Client"
onclick="if (confirm('SLCC stands for Software License Commerce Client')) return false;"
>
<abbr>SLCC</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 Software License Commerce Client, the meaning of the acronym SLCC, 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/Software-License-Commerce-Client/" title="Software License Commerce Client"
onclick="if (confirm('SLCC stands for Software License Commerce Client')) return false;"
>
<dfn><abbr title="Software License Commerce Client">SLCC</abbr>
</a> is ...(definition of Software License Commerce Client)....</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 SLCC acronym shows the expanded meaning of the acronym):

A SLCC is ...(definition of "Software License Commerce Client")....

If you are creating HTML code that simply expands the acronym then indicate that it is the SLCC 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/Software-License-Commerce-Client/" title="Software License Commerce Client"
onclick="if (confirm('SLCC stands for Software License Commerce Client')) return false;"
>
<dfn title="SLCC"><abbr title="Software License Commerce Client">SLCC</abbr></dfn>
</a> it is the abbreviation for Software License Commerce Client.</p>

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

When we use the acronym SLCC it is the abbreviation for Software License Commerce Client.

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.
