Just to let you know, I've given some thought to those acronyms some find so annoying. I get it, really. It's just that when I'm writing it would be totally untenable to write things out every time. Even if I could, writing out "non-esterified fatty acids" rather than NEFA every time would unnecessarily lengthen my posts. Most are long enough already! Also, the acronym is ultimately easier for readability and speed. However you sound it out in your head, NEFA is a heckuvalot shorter than non-esterified fatty acids.
So ... I've been working on a solution today, using an auto-type utility and a little HTML magic. I think I have it! Check out the sentence below. You can mouse over NEFA and see what the acronym means. It shows as a link. (Don't click though ... I'm going to have to make a "go back" link but for now it takes you to the Asylum home.)
Elevated levels of NEFA can be deleterious.It will take me time to put the acronyms in the auto-typing utility, but I think this should help. Feedback greatly appreciated!
