Default Dedicated abbreviations

I was just checking something out on Dakka Dakka and I noticed that certain abbreviations were highlighted differently. When I scrolled over them, they displayed possible meanings. For example, GW was for Games Workshop or Great Weapon.

Is there any way that we could implement something like that here? I know there have been lots of questions about things like "MEQ" and such.

Just a thought.

Don't you love the couple 20 odd topics we get every couple weeks asking what MEq TEq and all mean? ;-P

But I agree, it'd be pretty damn snazzy.

See how the MoS explanation is given when you scroll over the abbreviation? The same thing happens when you scroll over "AC" or "inv".

So, in our case, AC could be "Aftercrescent" or "Aspiring Champion". But, anyway, I'm sure you all get the idea now.

No idea how hard it would be to code, if even possible without a major forum change, but it sounds pretty neat.
