I see your disagree, and I raise you a link. :)


UK is the abbreviated form of United Kingdom.  As such, it should be  
in the content of the tag, or else using the abbr element is  
unnecessary.  However, I have no clue as to whether the class country- 
name is appropriate for country codes, which seems to be the issue.   
I was just commenting on the general html.
