• If you use the accesskey attribute with this element page, be wary of reserved
bindings. See the section “accesskey” under “Other Common Attributes Reference”
earlier in the chapter for a full discussion of this concern.
• The target attribute is not defined in browsers that do not support frames, such as
Netscape 1-generation browsers. Furthermore, target is not allowed under strict
variants of XHTML but instead is limited to frameset or transitional form. This
attribute, however, does regain its functionality under HTML5.
• See Appendix D for a complete discussion of the URL syntax, which is used as the
value of the src attribute.
<abbr> (Abbreviation)
This element allows authors to clearly indicate a sequence of characters that defines an
abbreviation for a word (such as Mr. instead of Mister, or Calif instead of California).
