What the best way to have an abbreviation in a link?
eg

<a href="#" title="Examples of CSS designs."><abbr title="Cascading Style Sheets" lang="en-gb">CSS</abbr>Playground</a>

As long as it's properly nested, I don't think it matters which comes first.

Wouldn't this be <acronym> rather than <abbr>? IE6 doesn't support <abbr>, so still safer to user <acronym> I think.

ahh thanks missed the replies,
yeah it is an acronym, doh.

Its the double tool tip you get when you do the above, hover over playground and you get the title, hover over CSS you get the acronym ,it just seemed wrong.
