Acronym Definitions Plugin
A plugin to wrap acronyms in an HTML "acronym" element with "title" attribute
This plugin allows to create an "acronym definitions topic", containing a dot-point list of acronyms together with their definitions:
- GNU - GNU's not Unix
- FSF - Free Software Foundation
which the plugin will then use to wrap all instances of those acronyms in an HTML <acronym> tag, with the acronym definition as the tag's 'title' text. Web browsers such as Chromium then display the definition text as a popup when one hovers the mouse pointer over the acronym.
The dot-point list must be in the above format, i.e. each line must be of the form:
with three leading spaces.
The plugin considers an 'acronym' to be a series of at least three upper-case letters.
