Error in HTML 4.01: invalid example for ABBR

Bugzilla from giecrilj@stegny.2a.pl

The HTML 4.01 Specification[1] contains the following example[2]

<ABBR lang="es" title="Do&ntilde;a">Do&ntilde;a</ABBR>

This is wrong: a word is not an abbreviation for itself.

Please fix.

Chris

Thanks. Indeed the content of the element should be D<sup>a</sup>.  
However, there are no plans to reissue the HTML4 spec, so this mistake  
will not be corrected.

Best wishes,

Steven Pemberton
