Very quickly.

In goodle I keyed "AO". Then in the results under "Search within results" at the bottom of the page I keyed "weather".

1st result: "http://nsidc.org/arcticmet/patterns/arctic_oscillation.html"

This works well

can I make yet another plea to those that love using abbreviations.

PLEASE, PLEASE when you use them, explain what they are or give a link to explain what they are.

Its dead easy to lose someone in one nano second flat with abbreviations.

The clever bit is never to use them unless you do as I've politely requested.

thanks in advance.

John

yep John, first rule of service writing is to put the abbreviation after the full term i.e Atlantic Oscillation (AO) that way the abbreviation will never be mis-interpreted. As you say, it would be nice to see it happen more often here :good:
