The browser renders the characters within the <abbr> tag as an abbreviation or an acronym. To decipher the abbreviation, the global title attribute is used (displayed as a pop-up text prompt when you hover the mouse over the abbreviation).
The content of the <abbr> tag in some browsers can be marked with a dotted underscore.
The <abbr> tag comes in pairs, so the closing (</abbr>) tag is required.

URL - This is a special form of designating an individual resource address on the Internet.
