Re: [xml-dev] Is "XML" an abbreviation or an acronym?

Although we could create a permathread on this topic, a more interesting question in my mind is - What is the basis for the question?

Subject: [xml-dev] Is "XML" an abbreviation or an acronym?

Hi Folks,

Is "XML" an abbreviation or an acronym?

In an XHTML document, should "XML" be marked up like this:

   <abbr title="Extensible Markup Language">XML</abbr>

or like this:

   <acronym title="Extensible Markup Language">XML</acronym>
