HTML <acronym> tag
What is the function of <acronym> tag?
<acronym> tag can give the acronym or full form of a short text by associating with the title attribute just like in <abbr> tag.
The acronym tag is not supported in HTML5.
Example of <acronym> tag
<acronym title = "Hyper Text Markup Language"> HTML </acronym>
Here, if you hover over the "HTML", a small box will be appeared near HTML showing the acronym what we have written (here, Hyper Text Markup Language).
It might not support on mobile browsers like UC Browser, Opera Mini etc.
Full Code Examples
<p> <acronym title = "Hyper Text Markup Language"> HTML </acronym> is the world most common Internet language. </p>
HTML is the world most common Internet language.
You come across that the <abbr> tag and <acronym> tag perform same functions exactly of giving full text description.
Although <acronym> is supported in almost browsers, it is highly recommended not to use <acronym> tag.
Note that <acronym> tag is not longer valid in HTML5.
