[Bug 14277] What does treating acronym identically with abbr means? Does it mean that if I will apply CSS style for abbr it should be also applied for acronym?

The spec doesn't say anything about treating anything identically. It says
"User agents must treat acronym elements in a manner equivalent to abbr
elements in terms of semantics and for purposes of rendering". Is that
ambiguous? I don't understand how that could be interpreted to mean that CSS
selectors for one match the other. Any suggestions on how to make it clearer?
