           Summary: abbr element broken in IE 6
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: General/Unknown
        AssignedTo: wikibugs-l@lists.wikimedia.org
        ReportedBy: entli...@gmx-topmail.de


The abbr element (used in MediaWiki since r54241 and r54242) cannot be styled
in IE 6 because IE 6 does not know about it and therefore treats it like all
unknown tags: It adds two void elements to the DOM, one with the tag name
"abbr" and another one with the tag name "/abbr" (sic).

This can be fixed using the technique described at
http://intertwingly.net/blog/2008/01/22/Best-Standards-Support#c1201006277,
possibly inside a conditional comment and only for IE 6; IE >= 7 supports the
abbr element natively.
