Post3 HTML Tags You Probably Never Used

<abbr> or <acronym>

The <abbr> and <acronym> tag describes abbreviations and acronyms. By marking up abbreviations you can give useful information to your visitors by showing tooltips when they hover the mouse over the element.

Example:

HTML

<q>

The <q> tag defines a short quotation. It tells the browser to insert quotation marks around the marked element. Most of us use the &quot; entity to display a quote but it’s easier with q

Example:

This is an example quote

<bdo>

The <bdo> stands bidirectional override that allows you to specify the text direction and override the bidirectional algorithm. Use it with the value rtl (right to left) and you will get the entire text reversed in direction.

Example:

Can you read this ?

The bdo tag can be easily be used to show your email address on webpages and not worry about spam ;).

  1. Haha, it’s true… I never used them but they seem very handy!

    I found all three handy. The first one is, like in your example, usefull for abbreviations. The second one replaces a code that I harldy can remember so that’ pretty handy too. 😀
    The last one is usefull too but I don’t really see when you should use a code like that?

    Anyway great post!
