Acronym spaghetti

As an industry, we love acronyms.  For newcomers this may be confusing. 

I toyed with the idea of a seperate glossary page with links to sites, but that seemed quite a heavy workload.  So I compromised and added a WordPress plug-in which automatically displays acronyms (if I have defined them) when you hover your mouse over the text.

Try it: BREEAM, EPC, WRAP, CIBSE, DSM et al. You don’t get a link to a website, but I credit you all with the intelligence to stick the phrase in a search engine and then I don’t need to maintain broken links.

If you use WordPress and want to try it out, the plug-in can be found here.

Hope someone finds this of use…
