Thanks - Denis, can you indicate which of these filter / sorting are
included in the current proposal from Studio24 for /TR?

Thanks for raising this - does this mean that adding an <abbr title> on
the first usage of the acronym would not be sufficient? (re filtering,
the JS used for filtering could take care of adding either the abbr or
the parenthesis as needed).

Were your concerns for acronyms "only" for the Rec track stages, or also
for family names? (if the latter, I think we could adopt the policy of
always expanding acronyms in family names)

Thanks!
