Abbr design pattern


Use the abbr design pattern to make text that is human readable also formally machine readable.

How to use it



  • Theoretically, this could be done with almost any HTML element. But is it a good idea? If it's not, is abbr the only one? User:DavidJanes
  • abbr-design-pattern should be avoided, if possible. RobertBachmann
    • why, or under what circumstances? For example, it is quite useful with datetimes. Should there not be other potentially analogous situations? User:DavidJanes
