                                          HTML Link
Simply include the acronym in a and abbr tags (not an acronym tag):
<a href="http://www.Acronyms.net/terms/m/ModulatorDemodulator/"
title="Modulator-Demodulator">
<abbr>Modem</abbr>
</a>
                             Acronym Vocabulary URI Declaration
For the remaining examples, the Acronym Vocabulary namespace URI needs to be declared for
use with element tag names and attribute values. For an HTML web page, the beginning of the
file should look like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd" [
<!ENTITY at "http://Acronyms.net/terms/">

]>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:av="&av;">
<head>
<style type="text/css">
.hide { display: none }
</style>
...
This only needs to be done once per document file.

                           URI Reference for Advanced Webmasters
This page is intended for advanced users, such as developers who are creating XML documents
or building Semantic Web sites, who want to code their own simple or extended links, or RDF
metadata. For all other purposes, the HTML hypertext links, which show the proper usage of URI
References, should be used instead.
In RDF or XML documents, refer to the abstract concept of Modulator-Demodulator using this URI
reference:
http://Acronyms.net/terms/ModulatorDemodulator
or, declare the &at; entity as shown below and use:
&at;ModulatorDemodulator
Note that a URI Reference is case-sensitive, and that www. is omitted since it is not intended to
be a web-accessible resource.
Use the following URL to refer to the web page that defines this term:
http://www.Acronyms.net/terms/m/ModulatorDemodulator
