Abbreviation Extension for Python-Markdown
==========================================

This extension adds abbreviation handling to Python-Markdown.

Simple Usage:

    >>> import markdown
    >>> text = """
    ... Some text with an ABBR and a REF. Ignore REFERENCE and ref.
    ...
    ... *[ABBR]: Abbreviation
    ... *[REF]: Abbreviation Reference
    ... """
    >>> markdown.markdown(text, ['abbr'])
    u'<p>Some text with an <abbr title="Abbreviation">ABBR</abbr> and a <abbr title="Abbreviation Reference">REF</abbr>. Ignore REFERENCE and ref.</p>'

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
