Alternatively, the definition of "acronym" could be deleted from Appendix A,
retaining the note which says that acronyms are included among abbreviations.
I think the guidelines take the correct approach; the acronym/abbreviation
distinction is the result of a regrettable decision taken when HTML 4.0 was
developed.
