Pop-up Balloons that decode CC acronyms....

recently sighted:

ICES , mog , mmf ,

DH (tho' many women may feel they were being far too nice regarding husbands!-- Heath excepted naturally)

and CC (but of course!)
===

others have been seen popping up too.

telltale signs -- a little set of dots -- a dotted underline -- under the acronym.

hover and balloon pops up!

(clicking once more anywhere on screen makes them go away)
--------------------------------------------------------------------

and what will Jackie and Heath dream up next???


great going! thumbs_up.gif

and I certainly hope you don't have to hand code each and every acronym individually!

-----

oh and TG -- at last something that isn't PINK! (tho' watch, just to get my goat.....they'll change it to florescent pink ---- hmmm maybe I shouldn't give them any ideas!)

You might see this feature toggle in and out over the course of the weekend as we are still working out the kinks.

It's so funny how different people are..... I think they're terribly annoying. Is there any way to disable them?

oh my gosh!!! I absolutely love this. I am older and have such a time trying to remember all of these. I am that nerdy one who literally has that poster with all the acronym meanings on my wall by the computer!! LOL> Well..... somebody has to.
Thanks for this great bit of help!
Oh and hot pink,,,,, well... I like the yellow! icon_wink.gif

we are working on adding a toggle in your profile to disable it if you do not find it useful.

nope, they are for everyone, if you see an acronym, try mousing over it and see if you get a pop up. IF not, you might be running an older web browser that does not support this function.
