Quality Abbreviations

Slightly lighter color (assuming your text is black), dotted bottom border, and a question-mark cursor. This has become a somewhat standardized approach, which is always a good thing in design usability.

abbr {
 border-bottom: 1px dotted #222;
 color: #222;
 cursor: help;
}

Posting Code

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

```
<script>
  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";
  }
</script>
```
