outmanoeuvre you? when you wander into the felgall territory of utter preposterous silliness, i wouldn't dream of making the effort to outmanoeuvre you...
for example: what exactly is "no" an abbreviation of?
I'm not saying that I would necessarily use abbr for a.m./p.m. I would usually not use a.m./p.m. in the first place, unless I quoted someone else. It would, however, be logical to use abbr rather than span if you wanted to apply an aural style so that the letters are read individually (if written as am/pm).

hey, that's a great example, christian
if i actually did wish to use an abbreviation for Anno Mundi, then i think i would use ABBR with the appropriate title attribute, if only to make sure that it wasn't incorrectly interpreted as Ante Meridiem
actually, i wouldn't
Anno Mundi is obscure enough that i would actually spell it out, so the whole idea of using ABBR for A.M. would be moot
Bizzare question. This thread didn't explain to you why many Engrish speakers wouldn't understand those??under what circumstances, and please give specific examples, would a.m. and p.m. ~not~ be interpreted in their usual way?
