    'ISU' underlined?

    Does anybody else see a dotted underline underneath "ISU" anytime it shows up in a post? I just started noticing this tonight. Is this a new thing or is it something with my browser?

    It's a new thing that lets you know what certain abbreviations stand for. If you hover your mouse over it, the complete word will appear.

    You would think they could atleast swing that for the online training courses...

    Other documents... probally too many acroynms being made to keep up with them. But atleast standard training documents could have that!

    Re: 'ISU' underlined?

    I'm adding them slowly as I think of them. It was initially started to help people understand some terms that aren't used often, but also to help our SEO (search engine optimization).


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Jeremy added it, but I think it's browser-specific. I don't get it in IE7.

    I've got IE7 and it works, no dotted lines, though.

    Re: 'ISU' underlined?

    I just added a few more. Some browsers won't actually show the little dots under the abbreviation but if you hover over the word for a couple seconds, it should show up.

    Here is my list so far...

    'isu' => 'Iowa State'
    'fb' => 'football'
    'wbb' => 'womens basketball'
    'gmac' => 'Greg McDermott'
    'jp' => 'Jamie Pollard'
    'eiu' => 'Iowa Hawkeyes'
    'mbb' => 'mens basketball'
    'cf' => 'CycloneFanatic'
    'ku' => 'Kansas Jayhawks'
    'knu' => 'Nebraska Cornhuskers'


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.
