Hi, so the semantic web and W3C reccomends the use of markups in the
right way that markup as created.
So the markup <abbr> as for "abbreviation" it match for the date in this way:
In this example I used abbr to indicate an abbreviated form of
January. Right way also for weeksday names like Mon (Monday) and
Other specific accessibility markup is <acronym> for the use with
acronym right. Example:
<acronym title="National Aeronautics and Space Administration">NASA</acronym>
In this way, <object> is used in order to include multimedia or other
So, I'm sorry but have just joined in this list. What is the problem with data?
