    I have an idea, may not be the best right now, but since Matt is still doing work on the site...

    Theres a way to make all acronyms a different color from the rest of the text, and when you hover your pointer over them it gives a definition of the acronym.

    Example: (computer wouldnt do the print screen right, so I had to add it in on my own...)

    [​IMG]

    looks pretty bad in that pic, since the print screen evidently doesnt show the pointer and whatever pops up next to it, but hopefully you all get the idea lol.

    Actually there is and I used to have that here years ago. If you would, please shoot me a PM after I get this new site looking good and working right. (hopefully less than 2 weeks) then I will try to track down how I did that before.
