This template exists to take advantage of the <abbr></abbr> feature present in HTML coding since 1999. It is present in all four major browsers (Internet Explorer; Google Chrome; Firefox and Safari) and has been tested by independent users. As such, it is ready for use on the wiki.

The coding is simple:

{{Abbr|title=Whatever you want to see|abbr=How you want it abbrehviated}}

If, for whatever reason, you wanted to divulge as to what S.T.A.R.S. stands for, but do not find it appropriate to write out the full name outright (it may be a file transcript, for example), you will use the following code:

{{Abbr|title=Special Tactics And Rescue Service|abbr=S.T.A.R.S.}}

This will generate: S.T.A.R.S.
