[Bug 12471] Please consider changing the expected rendering of abbr[title] and acronym[title] to use border-bottom instead of text-decoration: dotted underline, which has much more limited support (being in CSS3 Text, not CSS 2.1), conflicts with existing browser def

We don't *have* to use only widely-implemented CSS features, but if browsers
mostly agree on the current rendering, that's what we should standardize --
unless they want to change.  Compat with pages that have added border-bottom is
exactly the sort of reason why we shouldn't go around changing preexisting
default rendering (or anything else) without good reason.
