Today I found out that iCab and Lynx are not so exclusive in offering
LINK-navigation and updated the page with 3 more browsers.

I find it a pitty that even web authors that read the Lynx-Documentation for
Lynx enhancements are not told how to use the LINK element.

See <> for more
examples (and the links to ABBR and ACRONYM!

If you are interested in CSS2
<> contains a rule for a
similar behaviour in Mozilla/NN6.

But I guess this is  offtopic on this list.

This is an issue with all TITLE attributes, not the ABBR element.
