 +====== Abbreviations and Acronyms ====== 
  
 +[[DokuWiki]] can mark abbreviations and acronyms (terminology) automatically. You can hover your mouse on an abbreviation to see a short explanation, shown as a tooltip. For example, if the mouse is positioned over "CMS" (which is included in the default acronyms list), the tooltip displays ''Content Management System''.

-[[DokuWiki]] can mark abbreviations and acronyms (terminology) automaticallyIf your browser supports the <acronym> tag, you can hover your mouse on an abbreviation to see short explanation, shown as [[#tooltip]].+Note: only full words will be marked. Eg. an acronym that is used within word will not result in acronym tooltip. Example: CMS is an acronym, myCMS is not.
  
-Examples: HTML, RSS, XML, InsideRSSecret (does not count, as it's part of a longer word)
