I've never seen a single post using that tag.

Also, bring back the thing you just took away!  (j/k)
You don't notice them because you have to hover over it for a second before it appears. Hover over "different color" in my previous post.

Now if it would just put the "abbr' code tag in a , different color,  so that you know to mouse over it.

I actually thought the dotted underline was a good solution. visible enough to notice most of the time but not so obvious as to distract from reading the sentence. I try not to put anything important in there so that people who don't notice the underline (or don't know to mouse over) don't miss anything.
Is the dotted underline browser specific because I don't see any indication in IE.

Oh, I guess so... it doesn't show up for me in IE or Chrome, but works in Firefox. I'll have to keep that in mind.

Yeah, I just noticed that--the dotted underline shows up just fine on my laptop (Firefox), but doesn't show when I'm at work (Chrome). That's... stupid.

How about adding a link on this site (sguforums.com) that goes to http://theskepticsguide.org ? That logo at the top left looks like a good thing to link to theskepticsguide.org, as it's not going anything right now. Someone might complain that it wouldn't go to the same place as the "Home" link on that black bar of control links, but I'll let someone else make a suggestion of how to make that more consistent.

I'm looking at that "hierarchy"
("Skeptics Guide to the Universe Forums»The Skeptics' Guide to the Universe»Suggestions»")
and I'm tempted to say something about it and where the links go, but whatever.

ONE link that goes 'back' to theskepticsguide.org would be good.

On the main page the link "Be sure to visit The Skeptics' Guide to the Universe for podcast archives, show notes, SGU videos, more skeptical resources, membership information, and more." leads right where you want to go.
