Zero Insertion Force Usage

HTML for ZIF Acronym

when ZIF means Zero Insertion Force

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 ZIF stands for Zero Insertion Force 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/z/Zero-Insertion-Force/" title="Zero Insertion Force"
onclick="if (confirm('ZIF stands for Zero Insertion Force')) return false;"
>
<abbr>ZIF</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 Zero Insertion Force, the meaning of the acronym ZIF, 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/z/Zero-Insertion-Force/" title="Zero Insertion Force"
onclick="if (confirm('ZIF stands for Zero Insertion Force')) return false;"
>
<dfn><abbr title="Zero Insertion Force">ZIF</abbr>
</a> is ...(definition of Zero Insertion Force)....</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 ZIF acronym shows the expanded meaning of the acronym):

A ZIF is ...(definition of "Zero Insertion Force")....

If you are creating HTML code that simply expands the acronym then indicate that it is the ZIF 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/z/Zero-Insertion-Force/" title="Zero Insertion Force"
onclick="if (confirm('ZIF stands for Zero Insertion Force')) return false;"
>
<dfn title="ZIF"><abbr title="Zero Insertion Force">ZIF</abbr></dfn>
</a> it is the abbreviation for Zero Insertion Force.</p>

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

When we use the acronym ZIF it is the abbreviation for Zero Insertion Force.
