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.
