    • You could create index entries for them. But it's actually less work simply

      to spell them out. As you've just shown, abbreviations save no time at all,

      neither for you -- you have to do all this work to create a glossary, nor

      for the readers -- who would have to refer to the glossary.

    • Jezebel,

      So your disdain for acronyms carries over to abbreviations. Misters Ed

      and Rogers apparently agree :-)

    • Yes, if you need to explain them. For the exactly the same reason. The

      writer is making work for him/herself, and for the reader. Spell them out

      and you eliminate both tasks.
