Hi John,

This seems a cleaner solution than adding "initialisms" to the SC. The
Glossary would define all three terms (abbreviation, acronym,
initialism). The Guide would then point to appropriate general and

Gez, would this address your concerns?

Yes; my initial concern was only with the proposed definition.

Best regards,
