The point is that you can mouse-over the abbreviation to see what it stands for. It seems the support for this code isn't very universal, as I first viewed this thread on my phone and didn't find the code to have that functionality on my browser.
That's probably because touch screen interfaces generally have a hard time properly generating mouse over events.  I could be wrong but it might have something to do with the lack of a mouse.

Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.

If you can't demonstrate it, then you shouldn't believe it.

This is a test.

EDIT:  Safari doesn't even show it differently.

I don't even care to find out what you're doing wrong, but I'm sure you're doing something wrong.

Hey, I'm not the one complaining about not being able to mouse over on a phone.
