Hello,

A suggestion for the future of XHTML: change the tags from abbr to full
word. This kind of tags include p, q ,a, em, ul, dl, dt, ol and so on. For
example change "p" to "paragraph". The reasons for this:

1. Easy to remember, open XHTML to all persons from beginner to
professional(all can easy to understand). This may be hard to carry out. But
for the long way, it is good and can be planned.

2. Many tools are available for developers. So this have little bad effect
on developer, may be good for developer.

Best Regards,

Jifeng Yang
